From making ornaments, decorating aristocratic drawing rooms, to manufacturing the British coinage and coins of other countries at his mint, Boulton was the lead campaigner establishing the Birmingham Assay Office The book surveys his life as a 'toy' maker producing buttons, buckles and silverware. He went into business with James Watt, exporting the Boulton & Watt steam engines all over the world. Between 1766 to 1809, Soho House was Matthew Boultons home, an elegant Georgian house, it was a favourite meeting place, and near to Boulton’s factory.
