Book Description
This book includes over 80 monographs, accompanying illustrations and many pages of summary tables on the companies involved in the birth, rapid development and gradual decline of the industry in England and also includes details of the many American and some European pen manufacturers that established footholds in England, often briefly, during the years 1875 to 1975.  The sheer scope of the work is evidenced in the index - over 450 companies and more than 350 men (and a dozen or so women) involved in the design, manufacture, sale and repair of nearly 700 different fountain pens, stylos, ballpens and pencils are listed; over 3000 references in all!  

Based on the results of many years of diligent research in the stationery trade press and into patents, this book is a must for anyone with an interest in the English fountain pen industry and includes details of companies and products that many, even those diehard pen collectors (and dealers) will not have come across before.
