    DescriptionThis book deals with the early development of electrical appliances; it explains how they work and describes the problems encountered in their manufacture and operation. Many novel and little known appliances were made in the early days, and the author describes these and shows how some of the latest appliances are merely revivals of old ideas which were first tried out many years ago. This will be an ideal reference book for students, researchers and collectors seeking information about the way in which electrical appliances have evolved over the past hundred years or so.
