This book chronicles this period of enormous technological change by examining the history of the 100 most important, innovative, and memorable inventions of the 19th century. Using illustrations of the original patent drawings from The British Library's extensive collection, the author paints a vivid picture of the Victorian Age, highlighting inventions from the ground-breaking - such as aspirin, dynamite, and the telephone - to the everyday - like denim jeans and tiddlywinks. Along with informative descriptions of how the inventions and their patenting came about, the lives of the inventors and their circumstances provide entertaining insights into this world.
