Excerpt from Life of Richard Trevithick, Vol. 1: With an Account of His Inventions The overflow of Trevithick's practical designs has caused a difficulty in fairly defining and estimating the facts bearing on eacl'r of the particular kinds selected as belonging to understood classes of the steam-engine; while the great importance of his inventions caused many engineers to labour on their improvement, both during and since his time.

Richard Trevithick’s ‘Cornish engine’ was the world’s first self-propelled steam vehicle. His ‘Penydarren engine’ was the world’s first railway engine. But despite his towering historic achievements, fame and fortune obstinately eluded him. An often reckless yet truly brilliant engineer, he died in poverty and relative obscurity. Anthony Burton’s biography however rightly recognises him as one of the most remarkable figures in the history of the industrial revolution. His extraordinary and varied career, which took him from his native Cornwall to London, and then on to seventeen years of picaresque adventuring in South America, makes for wonderfully lively reading. Filled with dozens of illustrations and photographs, Richard Trevithick is a highly enjoyable, well researched biography that dissects the turbulent world of the industrial revolution.

Genius' is an over-used, but rarely-accurate, description applied to remarkable figures. In the case of Richard Trevithick, however, its use is not only apt, but could even be regarded as something of an understatement. Philip Hosken's 'Genius' offers a perfect introduction to the great engineer. Combining detailed and original research, the result is a clearly stated, unbiased and readable account of his life and achievements. From childhood and early motivation, through feverish experimentation and frustration, to the eventual triumph of his revolutionary high pressure cylindrical boiler, 1801 road engine and the world's first railway locomotive, the author explains how and why Trevithick became a giant of invention and innovation. Laying to rest myths regurgitated by less-diligent writers, while not neglecting the major contributions to the story of Papin, Newcomen, Savery and others, Hosken employs the kind of scientific rigour which the protagonist of his book might recognise and approve. If you only read one book about Richard Trevithick, make sure it's this one.
