The English Fountain Pen Industry
This book features many rare advertisements, summary tables of companies involved in the trade (including American and European manufacturers) and over 80 monographs written by Steve over the years, featuring the most important companies and personnel involved in the development of the English fountain pen industry. The book is based on information gleaned from the British stationery trade press over the period, much of which has never been published elsewhere before.
One of the most useful features is a very comprehensive index - over 3000 references in total cover 450 companies, 350 key individuals and nearly 700 different named models of pens!
