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.

Matthew Boulton, of the famous Boulton & Watt steam engine partnership, was an eighteenth-century designer and inventor. Before he partnered up with James Watt he was a successful industrialist manufacturing a range of silver and plated goods, buttons and buckles, and the sort of knickknackery known at the time as ‘toys’. He had a business network throughout continental Europe with travelling agents who represented his various interests. Without his commercial skills, Watt would probably have failed to bring his steam engine to market, but in due course Boulton started the process that would revolutionise the world of industry and transport: the engine was exported all over the world. Boulton was an affable man who enjoyed company and creative conversation. He was also a founder member of the Lunar Society and became a fellow of the Royal Society. This exciting new book, the first full-length biography of Matthew Boulton since H.W. Dickinson’s excellent publication in 1937, is the culmination of twenty years’ original research and brings to life one of the most colourful characters of the Industrial Revolution.
