Wonders of World Engineering

Welcome to the Wonders of World Engineering Website

This site is designed to share information about the magazine Wonders of World Engineering.


Published by the Amalgamated Press, it appeared as 53 weekly instalments from 2nd March 1937 through to 1st March 1938. A vast range of subjects was covered.


The complete work was designed to be bound in two hardback volumes which are still readily available. Others chose to retain the weekly parts with their attractive colour covers.  Today the weekly parts are more difficult to obtain but do appear from time to time.
