Boilerplate: History's Mechanical Marvel
by Paul Guinan & Anina Bennett
The robot of the 19th century was strange enough everywhere. Our great rough riding President Teddy had him as a partner of sorts, and the old tin machine actually had a battle with Jack Johnson, who at the time was the boxing king.
Lawrence of Arabia also used the first proto-type of what we now know as a robot. It's a fascinating history, which few knew about. History at its best. And not a word of it is true!
Nevertheless it is fully documented with vintage photographs, drawings, maps, and important (I guess) documents. For those who don’t trust history, here’s the ultimate history book! - Tosh
