Replete with detailed engravings, this four-volume catalogue was published to accompany the International Exhibition of 1862. Held in South Kensington from May to November, the exhibition showcased the progress made in a diverse range of crafts, trades and industries since the Great Exhibition of 1851. Over 6 million visitors came to view the wares of more than 28, 000 exhibitors from Britain, her empire and beyond. Featuring explanatory notes and covering such fields as mining, engineering, textiles, printing and photography, this remains an instructive resource for social and economic historians. The exhibition's Illustrated Record, its Popular Guide and the industrial department's one-volume Official Catalogue have all been reissued in this series. Including a floor plan of the main buildings, Volume 1 begins with a concise history of the exhibition written by John Hollingshead (1827-1904). It then catalogues and illustrates impressive examples of British manufacturing.TANGYE, BROTHERS, aamp; PRICE, Cornwall Works, BirminghamaWorking model of hydraulic wool and cotton press, and an hydraulic ship jack. al lllilll l ii iii llrlll 4m lllllla#39;l E itaquot;.
