"This volume is the result of a study, begun eight years ago, of the early history of coal mining, both abroad and in this country. The scarcity of data and the reasons for it are mentioned later.
"Many of the books whose names are in the reference list, and very many of the papers scanned, contained little or no information about coal; their names are included so that future students of the subject need not waste their time examining them for detailed information about coal.
"Much of the text consists of quotations, some of which are very long. These are used because the sources from which they came are scarce and difficult to access, and because our present view of coal is vastly different from the one of much earlier days..."
- Eavenson from the "Preface".

This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.View More Testimonials
