Fountain Pens for the Million

The History of Conway Stewart



The book details the history of Conway Stewart over 10 chapters in chronological order from their founding in 1905 up to their liquidation in 1975 until, after several abortive attempts at a revival, the company re-surfaced in 1994.


There are more than 700 'actual size' colour images of pens, stylos and pencils (including some rare prototypes), and other images of associated items, advertising and leaflets. There are also personal reminiscences from relatives of the founders of the company, as well as from former employees and directors. The appendices include lists of the known Conway Stewart model numbers, details of the various Dinkie models over the 50 years they were manufactured, and a comprehensive table showing the Le Tigre models made by Conway Stewart for the Belgian market.
