First edition.
Book that studies the upheavals that the steam engine caused in the artisanal fabric of the Hautes Alpes. "In a word, we are trying to bring out the effect produced by this new direction, this irresistible impulse given to industry by the steam engine which has annihilated the manual production of the workman in many localities, without any compensation for them." (from the preface).
