DISCOVERY OF EARLIEST KNOWN AUTOMOBILE DRAWINGS CIRCA 1840 IN COOKE JOURNAL - PART 7 OF 8
Richard Warren Lipack, the American based international historian, antique artifacts dealer and archivist discovered inventor Cooke's manuscript telegraph builder's journal in the late 1990's in America - thousands of miles from where it was created. It took approximately ten years to finally authenticate that the journal was indeed the the work of William Fothergill Cooke - who had worked between 1836 and late 1840 with Professor Charles Wheatstone of King's College, London - to perfect the first commercially based working binary electric telegraph communications system in the world.
Besides discovering the genesis of the Internet and basis of modern day computer access technology known as the electric typewriter styled keyboard, the telegraph builder's manuscript journal of William Fothergill Cooke yielded and equally fascinating discovery of the first and apparently earliest extant drawings of overland steam vehicles and single and double passenger personal automobile. One is drawn with a tiller steering while most remarkably, another is drawn with a steering wheel, the first of its kind in a small car ever to be found.
As can be plainly seen in the accompanying movie clip from INTERNATIONAL TREASURE: THE LOST JOURNAL OF WILLIAM FOTHERGILL COOKE, in the late 1700's and early to mid-1800's, all that has survived of tactile documentation of early overland vehicles are mere engravings and colored prints, but no original actual hand executed drawings or paintings are known to exist anywhere in the world from this time period.
In the journal of William Fothergill Cooke, however, there are several variants - from two views of an overland steam traction engine named the "EAGLE" and one of a single passenger steam car with a tiller and then miraculously, a two passenger steam powered self-propelled vehicle with a steering wheel - all dating to circa 1840.
All of this predates the first commercially produced automobile; the Benz Patent Motorwagen automobile of 1886 - by almost half a century.
The inventive effort by Cooke as entered into his work journal became the primary basis to all electronic communications that we have in modern times today, including the Internet. But now we can say that the modern small passenger automobile comes into the fold of influence as well - all clearly attributed to William Fothergill Cooke - the primary inventor of the first perfected commercial electric telegraph communications system in the world: all originating in England.
Without the manuscript workbook journal of inventor William Fothergill Cooke, there would be no technological means to even watch this video on.
In this short video, these exciting recently discovered automobile and early steam vehicle drawings are revealed to the world for the very first time. These rare drawings were lost to the ages - because the Cooke journal was lost until recently found; discovered by American historian Richard Warren Lipack.
The inventor Cooke and his partner Professor Charles Wheatstone of King's College, London established a partnership in 1836 to develop the world's first perfected commercial system of electric telegraph communications that came to fruition four years later in July of 1840 with the successful launch of the telegraph signal system installed on Isambard Kingdom Brunel's Blackwall Railway at the inauguration of the line's service.
Eventually, the work of William Fothergill Cooke blossomed to become the Electric Telegraph Company in 1846, which today is known as British Telecom, the later operating now in approximately 186 countries of the world.
Will the Cooke Journal someday become regarded as important as Codex Leicester: the celebrated finest manuscript work of artist Leonardo Da Vinci?
At the website www.WilliamFothergillCooke.com this miraculous story is now to be told for the very first time, in parts and revealed from the actual pages of the Cooke journal for scholars, students and historians the world over.
The world's communications and now automobile history is being re-written and re-defined.
This sixth of the eight video clips shown herein is a sample clip taken from the full 2 1/2 hour video documentary produced and directed by Richard Warren Lipack.
The full 2 1/2 hour documentary will soon be made available for study along with all pages of the Cooke journal itself through a "Premium Content" subscription.
