Item description for Beautiful Engines: Treasures of the Internal Combustion Century by Stan Grayson...

The human stories behind the development of the internal combustion engine are combined with full-color photographs in this coffee-table book to present the beauty of the engines themselves. In addition to the portrait-quality photographs, line drawings, cutaways, and clear text describe how each engine works and its primary uses. The fascinating histories of the engineers and inventors who built these pioneering machines---stories of fame and fortune and tragedy and ruin---are also told. Key stationary and marine engines from France, Germany, and the United Kingdom are shown in addition to famous U.S. engines from such manufacturers as International Harvester and Fairbanks-Morse.
