192 pages plus 47 pages of ads at back. "Before 1879 the electrical industry did not exist. It has made tremendous progress in the twenty odd years since it was born - progress much more rapid than that made, say, by the steam-engine a century ago." - from page 2. Doesn't that sound like the state of the internet in the mid-1990s, or the blockchain explosion of recent years? Chapters include: The Birth of the Electrical Industry; The Early Days of Electric Lighting; Electric Lighting in London and the Provinces; The Early Days of Electric Traction; The Development of Electric Inter-Urban Tramways; Electric Railways; Electric Power - An Industrial Revolution; The Economies of Electric Power; Electric-Power Distribution Schemes; Electrical Engineering as a Career; The Future of the Electrical Industry. Above-average but not excessive wear to red cloth exterior. Binding intact. Two small contemporary book vendor artifacts inside back board, otherwise unmarked. A worthy vintage copy of this fascinating historical item.
