Britain's industrial revolution

£75.00

Product description

FIRST EDITION:p Black cloth covered book with gilt titles on the spine. There is a small dent to the lower edge of the back cover and some crumpling to the top end of the spine at the back, otherwise it is in very good condition. The dust jacket is also in very good condition with only a minor bend to the upper edge at the back. The dust jacket is illustrated with a photograph of cogs and wheels on what appears to be some kind of spinning machine. Internally the book is clean, bright and tightly bound. The book is illustrated with many full colour and monochrome photographs, drawings, etchings and paintings. Published in 2013 by Carnegie Publishing. An extremely heavy book.
A general overview of the industrial revolution across the British Isles. The industrial revolution was one of the defining changes of human history, and it happened in Britain first. It radically changed the way goods were made, and led to new ways of working and living, creating the country and society we recognise today. "Renowned historian Barrie Trinder offers a magisterial and comprehensive view, sweeping in its perspectives yet coloured by a wealth of rich and vivid detail. ...This new book brings - as no other - the Industrial Revolution into focus."
