Book Description: 

In 400 pages and 140 sections over 12 chapters and several Appendices, this book contains a huge amount of hitherto unpublished material and details, in chronological order, the development of Mabie Todd’s involvement in fountain pens in England from 1880, through the introduction of the famous Swan in 1887, the ‘golden years’ of the 1920s and 1930s, to the demise (in Great Britain) in 1958. Along the way, there have been many important milestones, not least the repercussions of both world wars, the introduction of the ground-breaking Swan Leverless, the conversion to a public company and the acquisition by Biro Pens.

There are over 1,100 full-colour photos (most at actual size) of pens, pencils and ink pencils and hundreds of images of other items, including adverts, leaflets, price lists and photographs of the factories, offices and important personnel.
