Robert Fulton: Engineer and Artist
by

Publisher: Bell & Cockburn
ISBN/ASIN: B002BA431Y

Description:
The author has been instrumental in bringing to light a mass of documentary matter relative to Robert Fulton, and has thus been able to present the facts about him in an entirely new light. The interesting but little known episode of his career as an artist is for the first time fully dealt with. His stay in France and his experiments under the Directory and the Empire with the submarine and with the steamboat are elucidated with the aid of documents preserved in the Archives Nationales at Paris.
