A Span of Bridges - An Illustrated History
A Span of Bridges - An Illustrated History
Hopkins, H J

David and Charles (Publishers) Limited, 1970. Foxing to endpapers, dustjacket worn and chipped or torn at edges

This book traces the interplay of ideas and organisations, of theory and practice, from the turn of time to the present day. In an attempt to keep the story simple, each chapter deals with only one type of bridge, linked by chapter headings which reflect an idea of Robert Hooke, 'greatest of all philosophical mechanics'. The impact of his work, and that of other scientists, is interwoven with the story of the great bridgebuilders.

The story is told as simply as possible for the interested layman, the intelligent sixth-former, the engineering student and anyone who wants to know what makes a bridge engineer 'tick'.
