Extractions: Nasmyth was the inventor of the steam hammer, shaper and lathe reversing mechanism among others. His most important invention was his contribution of the self acting principle of machine design. He was a contemporary of Muadslay (the inventor of the screw turning lathe) and Bessemer (the inventor of the bulk steel conversion process). Written in an easy down to earth style, Nasmyth brings to life the world of early 1800's England. His discriptions of the technology of the times and improvements made during this part of the industrial revolution should be required reading for engineering and history students alike. Nasmyth starts his narrative with some family history including a humorus story about the origin of his name. He continues with his unusual (by modern standards) early education, his youthful endevors into mechanics and admiration of James Watt (the steam engineer). He discribes how he became Maudslay's assistant and eventualy starting his own machine manufacturing business. Among the many drawings reproduced is a copy from his design notebook of The original sketch of the steam hammer.

Extractions: The following biographies discuss some of the world's greatest machinists. As you can tell from reading them, many of these machiist's knew each other and probably benefited from each other's knowledge and ideas. I also present a chart of these men's relationships which illustrates this idea grpahically. 'General' Bentham, was responsible for the construction and supervision of H.M. Dockyards. Perhaps the most important of these was, at the time of publication 1877, situated at Chatham "where every item of turnery, etc. is performed for the Navy, from boring the chamber of a pump to the turning of a button for a chest of drawers". It was at Chatham that Brunel's remarkable block making machinery was set up under Bentham's direction. A second set was also installed in Portsmouth Dockyard. The plant at Chatham, however, was never used since Portsmouth could supply all the blocks that the Navy required. BRAMAH, Joseph, 1748 - 1814

Extractions: NASMYTH, ALEXANDER His youngest son, James, was the well-known inventor of the steam-hammer. His six daughters all attaineda certain local reputation as artists, but it was in his eldest son,Patrick (1787-1831),that the artistic skillof his family was mostpowerfully developed. Having studied under his father, Patrickwent to London at the age of twenty, and soon attracted atten-tion as a clever landscapist. He was a diligent student of theworks of Claude and Richard Wilson, and of Ruysdael andHobbema, upon whom his own practice was mainly founded.His most characteristic paintings are of English domestic scenery,full of quiet tone and color, and detailed and minute expressionof foliage, and with considerable brilliancy of sky effect. Theywere executed with his left hand, his right having in early lifebeen injured by an accident.For an account of the Nasmyth family see James NasmythsAutobiography (1883).

Abstemious in habits, and devoted to music and poetry, he wasa cultured, able and well-meaning ruler, and his reign, alreadyunusually long for an Eastern potentate, might have lasted stilllonger had it not been for the unpopular sale of the tobaccomonopoly, which was probably a factor in his assassination atTeheran on the ist of May 1896 by a member of the Babi faction. He was succeeded by his son Muzaffar-ed-din.NASRIDES, THE, of Granada, were the last of the Mahom- medan dynasties in Spain. They ruled from 1232 to 1492.

Extractions: The image shown is a view of Archimedes and the Apennines. The height of the mountains in the model is not quite accurate, for the longest shadow should be cast by Mt. Hadley, the mountain furthermost left of center. In its shadow, nearly one hundred years later, Apollo 15 would become the fourth manned spacecraft to land on the lunar surface.
