Lawnmowers: An Illustrated History (Paperback)

Usually Arrives at Kepler's in 3-14 Days


This concise book follows the journey of this quintessentially great British invention, often thought never worthy of a picture, and celebrates the mundane with its fascinating history, aided by superb unique pictures rarely seen before. From lawnmowers that manicured great palaces to those that groomed the hallowed turf of Wembley, Wimbledon, golf courses, and cricket grounds around the world, this book features a variety of machines and their stories. Also included are the first lawnmower; the biggest; smallest; most expensive; and fastest. There’s also a glimpse of "Lawnmowers of the Rich & Famous." This unique book follows the story before the invention of animal-powered grass cutting machinery and the internal combustion engine up to the present-day robot mowers and into the future.
