Generally obscured by Englands great industrial development are the contributions France made in the invention of the balloon, paper-making machines, the steamboat, the semaphore telegraph, gas illumination, the silk loom, the threshing machine, the fountain pen, and even the common graphite pencil. Shelby T. McCloy believes that these and many other inventions which have greatly influenced technological progress made prerevolutionary France the rival, if not the leader, of England.

In his book McCloy analyzes the factors that led to Frances inventive activity in the eighteenth century. He also advances reasons for Frances failure to profit from her inventive prowess at a time when Englands inventions were being put to immediate and practical use.
