附註 Includes bibliographical references and index
Mining in Cornwall and Devon is an economic history of mines, mineral ownership, and mine management in the South West of England. The work brings together material from a variety of hard-to-find sources on the thousands of mines that operated in Cornwall and Devon from the late 1790s to the present day. It presents information on what they produced and when they produced it; who the owners and managers were and how many men, women and children were employed. For the mine owners, managers and engineers, it also offers a guide to their careers outside of the South West, in other mining districts across Britain and the world, and is an invaluable guide for family historians and those interested in biographical history. The printed book provides a guide to the sources, their interpretation and how they illustrate the long-term development and decline of the industry. The book contains 15 illustrations. The composite mine-by-mine tables are presented on an interactive CD included free with the book
