About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Men of Achievement: Inventors With the many and superb tools now at our service, of which our fathers knew comparatively nothing - steam, electricity, the telegraph, tele phone, phonograph, and the camera - we and our descendants ought to accomplish even greater wonders than these./ As invention thus rises in the scale of importance to humanity, the history of the pioneers and, to the shame of mankind be it said, the martyrs of the art, becomes of in tense interest. In the annals of hero-worship the inventor of the perfecting press ought to stand before the great general, and Elias Howe should rank before Napoleon. Whitney, Howe, Morse, and Goodyear, to mention but a few of our Americans, contributed thousands of millions of dollars to the nation s wealth and received com paratively nothing in return. Their history sug gests as pertinent the inquiry whether our patent laws do not need a radical change. The bur den and cost of proving that an invention de serves no protection ought to fall upon who ever infringes a patent granted by the Govern ment. At present it is all the other way.

Excerpt from Men of Achievement: Inventors This book, dealing with our great inventors, their origins, hopes, aims, principles, disappoint ments, trials, and triumphs, their daily life and personal character, presents just enough con cerning their inventions to make the story intelligible. The history is often a painful one. When poor Goodyear, the inventor of vulcan ized rubber, was one day asked what he wanted to make of his boys, he is said to have replied: Make them anything but inventors; mankind has nothing but cuffs and kicks for those who try to do it a service.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Excerpt from Men of Achievement: Inventors With the many and superb tools now at our service, of which our fathers knew comparatively nothing - steam, electricity, the telegraph, tele phone, phonograph, and the camera - we and our descendants ought to accomplish even greater wonders than these./ As invention thus rises in the scale of importance to humanity, the history of the pioneers and, to the shame of mankind be it said, the martyrs of the art, becomes of in tense interest. In the annals of hero-worship the inventor of the perfecting press ought to stand before the great general, and Elias Howe should rank before Napoleon. Whitney, Howe, Morse, and Goodyear, to mention but a few of our Americans, contributed thousands of millions of dollars to the nation s wealth and received com paratively nothing in return. Their history sug gests as pertinent the inquiry whether our patent laws do not need a radical change. The bur den and cost of proving that an invention de serves no protection ought to fall upon who ever infringes a patent granted by the Govern ment. At present it is all the other way.
