Diesel’s Engine Volume One From Conception to 1918 by Lyle Cummins Jr. Large hardback volume published in 1993 by Carnot Press. A readable and comprehensive history of the man and the engine. It traces the life of an obsessed engineer and his contemporaries who brought the world’s most efficient heat machine to the marketplace. Rudolf Diese’s ideas were often ahead of their time, and his engine endured failures and setbacks until new technologies were found. Only interium, imaginative solutions overcame the frustrating problems encountered. What Rudolf invented, as perceived by his peer defenders and detractors in technical forums nad courts of law, is viewed with an advantage of historical hindsight. His engine created an international industry through the struggles of risk taking licensees who turned it into a reliable, land based powerplant. It soon went to sea as propulsion for commerce and underwater weapons of destruction. 746 pages with illustrations. A few light marks on text block. Price quoted will be: – UK 2nd class or parcel.
