From his ironworks at Bersham, near Wrexham, John Wilkinson pioneered the production of cast iron in the mid 18th century. He made important contributions to the manufacture of munitions and the development of railways and stationary steam engines, and his eventful career brought him into contact with men such as James Watt, Josiah Wedgwood and Thomas Telford. In this detailed study, Dawson explores the life and work of one of the less well-known trailblazers of the Industrial Revolution.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. From a farming background in Cumbria, John Wilkinson's remarkable abilities and ambitions ensured his rise to pre-eminence among the gifted pioneers of the industrial revolution. His colleagues and friends were similarly talented characters, including James Watt, Josiah Wedgwood, Richard Crawshay and Thomas Telford. Wilkinson achieved great leaps in the iron industry and munitions, including the first use of sound castings and accurate boring for cannon manufacture, but he was also influential in the development of steam railway engines, waterways, and copper refining, and worked extensively with lead and chemicals. But while Wilkinson's technological triumphs were admired by his contemporaries, his personal affairs were complicated and sometimes tragic. This well-informed and readable book, based on research by the author born of a fascination with Wilkinson after living at his family home, gives a unique insight into the character and thinking of the man Telford named `King of the Ironmasters'.
