Jarrit Smith’s 1751 Newcomen Engine by Steve Grudgings
Summary: This book details the building of Jarrit Smith’s 1751 Newcomen Engine at Coalpit Heath, South Gloucestershire.
Previously unreported, a full set of the suppliers’ bills has been researched to give the basis for this book. The detailed work has over 60 pages, including photographs and diagrams.
The book is a fascinating insight into a very early “atmospheric” pumping engine and should appeal to anyone interested in stationary engines.
