The Great Engineers: The Art of British Engineers, 1837-1987 cover
This book spans the period between the two Prince Consorts - Prince Albert, who provided the inspiration for the Great Exhibition of 1851, and Prince Philip, who has consistently championed design and engineering in the United Kingdom. A series of twenty-two essays by leading engineers, historians, and industrialists - all recognised authorities within their specialised field - presents a balanced view of the continuing legacy of such major 19th century engineers as Freeman Fox, Brunel, Bazalgette and the Stephensons, as well as exploring the work of today's large practices, such as Ove Arup and Partners, Felix Samuely and Partners, and Buro Happold, who continue a worldwide tradition of design excellence. In addition, there is a special section of biographies of more than sixty engineers, together with a list of great British inventions.
