Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Naval History of Great Britain, Vol. 1 of 6: From the Declaration of War by France in 1793, to the Accession of George IV

In 1769, James Watt, then a mathematical instrument-maker in Glasgow, obtained a patent for his great invention of perform ing condensation in a separate vessel from the cylinder. To this he made many subsequent improvements, and acquired additional patents. In 1778, the notorious Thomas Paine pro posed the application of steam in America and in 1807, Robert Fulton, a native of Pennsylvania, started a small steam-boat on the Hudson river. The progress of this vessel through the water scarcely exceeded five miles an hour. Fulton had medi tated on the experiment since 1793 but although he claimed to be the first who applied water-wheels to the purposes of steam navigation, most assuredly he was not the inventor. Yet he has often been so called, as in naming the new world, Amerigo Vespucci has supplanted Columbus to whom the lawful parent. Age belongs.

Mr. Millar, of Dalswinton, in Dumfriesshire, a Scotch gentle man of good family and fortune, and with a mind devoted to mechanical inquiry, expended many years, and many thousands.
