“Some Early Robey Steam Engines” by P.J.M. Southworth‘Some Early Robey Steam Engines’ was published by Peter Southworth in 1986. It was the first of five books he wrote on steam engines and went out of print some years ago. It has now been reprinted.The photographs in the book were copied by Peter from two albums of albumen prints that for a short time came his way. They date from 1874 to 1886 and at one time belonged to Robey’s. They are not only records but were used in catalogues and adverts. The book is not intended to describe in detail the workings of a steam engine, but it is a small effort to publish photographs that may have otherwise remained hidden. A4, 44 pages, 58 photos and drawings, packed weight £6.75
