Inventions That Changed the World
Inventions That Changed the World gives readers an unprecedented insight into the events, people and histories behind technological and scientific developments that have helped shape modern civilization.
The book transports the reader back in time to share the excitement and inspiration of some of the most important moments in the history of technology. An invention is rarely the brainchild of a single person, however brilliant, and the book includes timelines that explain the development of each creation and pay homage to some of the other great developments that came before and after. Beautifully illustrated throughout, the book contains 20 items of rare, on-the-page documents and memorabilia, from plans of the Wright Brothers' plane to extracts from the notebook of Alexander Graham Bell.
