Tools for the Job
Published by HMSO 1986 - Second revised edition
Written by the redoubtable Tom Rolt, himself an engineer, this book was the first complete, although concise, history of machine tools, and like all his writings is very readable, It takes the story into the 1960s, and is international in scope featuring developments in the UK, America and Germany in particular. A fascinating book.
