Overview

Rare source materials on the development of industry and transportation in France. The French Industrial Revolution took place between 1810 and 1870. Technological innovations were introduced slowly and took hold gradually, but eventually resulted in dramatic changes in the means of production. In addition to the development of France's rail network and waterways, this period saw the flourishing of industrial exhibitions whose purpose was to acquaint the French public with the progress of the country and, more significantly, to serve notice to Britain that France was equal to any economic challenge. More than 50,000 pages of rare source materials make up this collection, divided into five sections:

  • “Statistics”: Descriptive Accounts of the French Industrial Economy
  • Towards a Rational Organization of Industry
  • French Industrial Exhibitions
  • Major Industrial Surveys
  • Railways and Waterways
