Ransomes Sims & Jefferies Agricultural Engineers by Brian Bell

Ransomes of Ipswich was at the forefront of the agricultural engineering and grass-cutting industries in Britain. In the course of their 200-year history they were responsible for many innovations including the self-sharpening ploughshare, the first self-moving agricultural machine and the manufacture of the first lawn mower. They were renowned for their steam engines and threshers; they built tractors and trolley buses, combines and reach trucks. They provided Britain's tillage implements and they exported throughout the world.

Using over 300 illustrations, a quarter in colour, Brian Bell gives a vivid picture of Ransomes and in particular their contribution to twentieth century farm machinery. His text is authoritative, full of detail and an absorbing read for a wide range of enthusiasts. Whether you have used Ransome's products or have had a closer association with the company you will find something to hold your attention in this attractively produced new book.
