The engineering firm Richard Garrett & Sons Ltd of Leiston, Suffolk, began as bladesmiths and edge-tool manufacturers in 1789; by the mid-19th century the company was famous for its threshing machines and portable steam engines. Following his history of the company, RA Whitehead wrote a series of immensely detailed, illustrated books on its various manufactures: here, he describes the steam heavy rollers and steam tractors produced between 1898 and 1919, and later, after the firm’s amalgamation into Agricultural and General Engineers. With 149 illustrations, including photographs and technical drawings.
