Notes 'Between the 1830's and World War I, the life of man was completely changed from what it had been in the past. More leisure time, modern luxuries, and an easier life were among the benefits gained by remarkable inventions being established throughout the world. In America, some 32 men were responsible for this change--backed by the organization and finance of the industrial revolution'. These are their stories. The near fine book is bound in black cloth; it is clean, straight and tight. The upper spine end is a tiny bit rubbed, as is one corner. The interior is completely free of marks or tears. The dust jacket is price intact and unclipped; clean and bright. The spine and folds are a bit sunned and it has a touch of edge wear, mostly at the spine ends. A very nice copy. ; 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"; 290 pages
