A HISTORY OF COPPER MINING IN CORNWALL AND DEVON


By D.B. Barton


(Hardback) (Second hand copy in very good condition)

  

The rise and fall of copper mining in Cornwall is, in many respects, the most fascinating single aspect of all the county's industrial history. Although the mining of tin and copper were inevitably connected, each ran a different course and prospered and declined at different periods and for different reasons.

  

This is a comprehensive and well-researched account of an industry which, for more than a century, provided prosperity for Cornwall but was virtually extinct by 1900.

  

Published by the Truro Bookshop. Hardback with dust jacket. 1961. Black and white photographs, maps and illustrations. 98 pages. Very good condition. Previous owner's name on title page.
