GREENWELL, G.C. - A Practical Treatise on Mine Engineering.
Newcastle, Lambert; London, Spon 1870. Two volumes quarto modern half morocco preserving the original cloth sides & marbled endpapers (edges a little worn); ,255pp, 64 colour litho plates (all but three double page). A few spots, occasional useful pencilling; a quite handsome set. ¶ Second edition, much revised, rewritten and reconstructed to encompass progress since the first (1855) edition. Determinedly practical, Greenwell registers his gratification for works already laid out following his advice and reiterates that the instructions here can be 'safely followed with proper working results.' It is also a very pretty book, if a mining book may be called that. The plates, even those of strata, are appealing. Strata, fossils, machinery - all these work as graphic designs - as do particularly (believe it) some plans of coal workings.AUD 750.00 [Appr.: EURO 532.25 US$ 574.64 | £UK 459.5 | JP¥ 63908] Book number 4992
