Destined to be forever overshadowed by his extraordinary tower, the career of Gustave Eiffel (1832-1923) included a great many significant engineering achievements, among them the Nice Observatory dome, the Garabit Viaduct, the supporting framework of the Statue of Liberty in New York and the Panama Canal locks. As well as describing these and other important projects, Eiffel's direct descendant Philippe Couperie-Eiffel draws on the family archives to present a richly illustrated portrait of the great engineer's public and private life.
