Flushed with Pride: The Story of Thomas Crapper Reviews
Poor photo copy of original. Omits graphics from original edition. Not recommended.
It looked as though I was ordering a hard cover book, but it came as a paperback and didnt look like the advertised picture. I dont think I got my money's worth.
A humorous but educational story of Thomas Crapper
I purchased this book for my father, at his request. He is a plumbing instructor. He was very pleased with the excellent condition of the book as well as the book itself.
This is a biography about Thomas CRAPPER, what else do I need to say? A man who's name we utter daily in the English speaking world. Who wouldn't want this book in their library.
This is a clever little hoax book from the mind-droppings of humor writer Wallace Reyburn, who also favored us with "Bust Up: The Story of Otto Titzling" who, according to Reyburn, invented the brassiere and, thus, gave us the eponymous common name for its contents. Cute, huh?
An interesting look at the history of not only how the modern flush toilet was developed, but how modern septic systems evolved from the nightmarish waste systems of the past. Anecdotal stories give a captivating closeup perspective. The author tells the story in a mature and proper way befitting England's premier Royal Plumber.
We use it every day, several times a day -- the humble flush toilet keeps our homes clean, safe, and odor-free. This amusing little book has the wondrous history of this most wonderful and humble of household objects. You'll never look at your toilet in the same way again.
