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: this volume covers self-moving steam traction engines and variants including ploughing engines, road locomotives and showmen’s engines. Illustrated with photographs and technical drawings. Off-mint.
