Industrial History Titles

Our range of industrial books continues to grow slowly. We do, however, have a number of new projects in hand which will widen the scope of the coverage.

We have also purchased the remainder of three books on the Gas Industry, which have not been widely marketed but which contain much of interest to industrial historians. For those with an interest in the unusual take a look at The Magic of Hot Water, full of wonderful contraptions for heating the bath and lots of excellent period advertisements.
