Edited by Steve Grudgings, Hb, 192 pages, 335mm x 212mm,cloth bound, gold-blocked covers


This remarkable volume is an exact facsimile of the hand-written Order Book of Messrs Rogers & Company, a very early firm of boilermakers based in Bristol, who manufactured boilers and other plant for numerous West Country firms during the early and mid years of the Industrial Revolution. Amongst their customers were numerous collieries, both large and small (some now virtually unknown) in the Bristol and North Somerset coalfield, as well as dozens of other industrial and transport concerns, including the Grand Western Canal, for whom they manufactured the huge water buckets used to power the Wellisford inclined plane.
