About the Author:

The enchanting world of steam captured the imagination of Bob Gordon when, as a boy, he spent Saturday mornings stoking a Cornish boiler in a steam-powered laundry. Ever since then he has had an affinity with steam and a love of the evocative smell of hot oil and coal smoke. Nowadays he keeps his love of steam alive by operating toy steam engines and driving model steam locomotives on his garden railway, Mr. Gordon has also written Early Electrical Appliances and Model Steam Engines in this series.

Synopsis:

Many different kinds of stationary toy steam engines were produced in the heyday of steam toys between 1900 and 1930. Dealing mainly with German manufacturers (the pioneers in this area), the author offers a guide for collectors of these toys.'
