  5. 5. GUESS THE AUTHOR…• “…as much as two thousand years ago the  power of steam was not only observed, but  an ingenious toy was actually made and put  in motion by it, at Alexandria…”• What appears strange is, that neither the  inventor of the toy, nor anyone else, for so  long a time afterwards, should perceive that  steam would move useful machinery as well  as a toy.”
