About this book

Highly praised, exhilarating account of the scientific society formed in the English Midlands in the 1760s. It included James Watt, Josiah Wedgewood, Joseph Priestley and Erasmus Darwin, and its world view and the vigour with which it was pursued can be seen as driving forces of the Industrial Revolution.
