A New Book by David Evans


From the back cover of the book.

"Born near Roskilde in Denmark in 1855, Mikael Pedersen quickly showed his powers of invention. One idea he patented was a milk separator which revolutionised dairy practice. It was taken up by the engineering firm of R A Lister in Dursley, Gloucestershire, into which town Mikael settled in 1889. With him came his genius for inventing and for providing unique solutions to engineering problems. He is known now just for his bicycle of unusual design - the Dursley Pedersen - but in his time he was highly regarded in engineering circles and played significant roles in the First World War. At the end of that war he and his family vanished and the rest of his life was for a long time a mystery.

What happened to him was first revealed in the writer's 'The Ingenious Mr Pedersen' published in 1978.

In 'Mr Pedersen - A Man of Genius' David Evans tells Mikael's story again with very much more information about this highly talented man. It explores Mikael's inventions and his human side which was such that he was remembered by those who knew him well with great affection to the ends of their lives."
