This book consists of a number of chapters, each one of which is a effectively a stand alone printed version of a paper presented at a series of lectures held to celebrate the centenary of this iconic bridge. Whilst each chapter is the work of a practicing civl engineer it is very readable and presents an excellent overview of the history of the bridge as well as dealing with the then current maintenance regime and looking at alternatives tha may hve been consied had the bidge been built in more modern times.

FORTH BRIDGE BIOGRAPHY 20 Oct. 2011
By History Maker - Published on Amazon.com

There aren't many books about the Forth Bridge, but this one covers a lot of facts that other books don't. It's fasinating how this bridge came to be built. Even today it would be an engineering challenge. It covers the other bridge designs that were considered before a cantilever type was decided upon. It's simply amazing how in less than 8 years this masterpiece of civil engineering was built and each day 200+ trains cross it even though it's 121 years old. It held the longest bridge span record for 18 years and is still considered an engineering marvel. Out of tens of thousands of bridges in the world, it's ranked at number five. The bridge is kept in peak condition and has a permanent bridge crew that oversee the day to day maintenance. Even though it's famous in Europe, hardly any Americans other than engineers know about it.
