Descripción

The scrapbook is landscape 8vo (28 x 18.5 cm), and contains 28 leaves of brown paper tied together with ribbon, on which, together with the inside of the back cover, the images (dating from between 1860 and 1928) are laid down. The scrapbook lacks the front cover, and its leaves are worn, but the images are in good overall condition, with occasional wear and creasing. Ranging in size from 14.5 x 11 cm ('Fowler 8/c Traction About 1875. Jointed Horn Plates.') to 7.5 x 5.5 cm ('S/c Traction (About 1875-80)'. An impressive collection, formed by an engineer or serious enthusiast, with most of the photographs (which form the majority of the images) apparently having been made from engineering journals and catalogues, while others are clearly original photographs of engines in situ. Also present are a number of original engravings taken from the same sources. Almost all items captioned. For example, on the first page: 'CPD. Road Roller. Armstrong-Whitworth Ltd. Scotswood, Newcastle-on-Tyne' and 'John Allen & Sons Ltd. Cowley, Oxford'. Other examples include '1895 S/c Spring Mounted Road Loco. John Fowler & co. Leeds Ltd.' and 'Aveling & Porter 1871. DNP "Steam Sapper" drawing ARMSTRONG Breech Loadg Siege gun 95 cwts.' The blueprint (22.5 x 15 cm) is for an '8 H. P. Traction Engine | Barrows & Stewart. Engineers. LANBURY. Oxon. 1879.'.
