The Evolution of the Book: Frederick G. Kilgour.

Posted by 2018 article


CAPE TOWN - In celebration of International Literacy Day, we focus on the evolution of E-books. E books are designed to be read from an electronically compatible device either an IReader, a Kindle E-reader, tablet or personal computer. The idea was based on allowing you to have access to as much reading material but without having to carry plenty of books. 

This was the very reason a woman named Angela Ruiz Robleshad got her innovative idea from in Spain. 
In 1949, Angela’s first design which consisted of less amount of text printed onto spools operated by compressed air.  She made her first prototype in 1949.  While this book was not electronic it is still hailed as the first automated reader. 

However, her project was never picked up for mass production and she was never able to get a viable patent on the design, but there is a photograph of her holding it in 1949 so she can still claim it.

The Evolution of the Microscope covers some of the features of the history of the microscope and the rationale of the design features found in microscopes. The book discusses the first microscopes, the compound microscope in England (1650-1750), simple or single-lens microscopes, and the development of the achromatic microscope. The text also describes the microscope in Victorian times as well as the optical microscope since 1880. The search for greater resolving power such as the ultra-violet and electron microscopes is considered. Scientists and microscopists will find the book invaluable.
