Christopher Polhem: The Father of Swedish Technology
Translation of a volume originally published in 1911 about Christopher Polhem (CP), a great man in the history of technology and scientific discovery. But Polhem is not known in the English-speaking world, because the Swedish language has been a cultural barrier. Technically, what Sweden possesses today is dependent upon CP and his dream for an industrial Sweden. Contents: A Contribution to the Biography of CP, by Samuel Bring; CPís Contributions to Applied Mechanics, by Gustaf Sellergren; CP, The Mining Engineer, by Herman Sundholm; CPís Contribution to the Art of Building, by Nils Cronstedt; and A Contribution to a CP Biblio., by Samuel Bring: Published Works by and About CP; and CPís Manuscripts.
