I first read this book while I was at school, years ago. It's a reprint of various news/journal articles on inventions of the Victorian era. Lots of illustrations of improbable and otherwise inventions are presented - including the engravings of the NY pneumatic subway which decorates the walls of the average Subway sandwich outlet. The only complaint I have is that it's a bit light-on in terms of length. Still, it's worth a look. I bought it after having remembered it from years, so check it out.
