Inventions 2 Volumes
The evidence presented to the Select Committees which were appointed at intervals throughout the nineteenth century to review the working of the patent system, throws light on the difficulties encountered by Victorian inventors and on the many problems, scientific and legal, which had to be overcome before inventions could be put to practical use. The informed and detailed reports of the Select Committees led parliament to enact legislation in 1851 and 1883 which completely reformed the patent system. The 1851 Act was the basis of the British patent system for nearly one hundred years.
