Isambard Kingdom Brunel, by Richard Tames

Isambard Kingdom Brunel, An illustrated life 1806-1859
Richard Tames

The greatest engineer of his age, Brunel accomplished works others refused to contemplate: the Clifton SuspensionBridge, the tunnel at Box in Wiltshire, the first iron ship. Despite his successes and failures, Brunel’s life was dogged by tragedy and near disaster. He died before his great ship (The Great Eastern) proved its worth and before the Clifton Bridge was completed. In every sense a man who lived before his time.
