Synopses & Reviews
Since 1954, when Foundrywork for the Amateur
was first published, the advance of technology and engineering has been enormous and there have been many revisions along the way. However, conditions in the 1990s are so far removed from the state of affairs in the 1950s that, although the basic principle of the foundry remains the same, the language and the presentation of the book was due to be uplifed. The present edition therefore represents a complete rewrite to conform to the era and, in particular, to the availablity of material which at one time was taken for granted.
Not only has the text been updated but the illustrations have been completely redrawn and, on the basis of the advances made in the amateur foundry since the early days, the photographs have also been renewed and increase in number. This new edition also reflects the author's growing interest in the model steam locomotive.
