29 editions published between 1923 and 2013 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When it appeared in 1923, John Lord's Capital and Steam Power 1750-1800 was the first book to be based on the voluminous Boultori and Watt papers in Birmingham since the hey-day of Samuel Smiles. Although Lord's conclusions have been modified and corrected on various points, this book still remains the best short account of the significance of this classic engineering partnership which bulks so large in the history of technology and of the Industrial Revolution in Britain. ""Mr. Lord's Capital and Steam Power 1750-1800 is an important contribution to economic history ... His introductory sketch

The unknown war ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1978, the Soviet Union produced "The Unknown War" as something of a response to the 1973 U.S. series "The World At War" feeling that the latter series shortchanged the role that Russia played in WWII. While not outright propaganda, it is resolutely pro-Soviet, glorifying their soldiers and people. This includes episodes about everyday life for Russians during the war, and how the Soviet government moved their production facilities to Siberia to escape the Nazis (and ended up being the most productive country during the war). Despite plentiful, revelatory unearthed combat footage, it feels rather stodgy, which--given that it was commissioned by the Soviet government--is not all that surprising
