Overview

Mining's dramatic and dangerous nature is reflected in the hundreds of specialized tools and artifacts shown in over 450 color photographs and discussed in this fascinating new book. Thirty categories, from advertising and assay equipment to surveying equipment and tokens, chronicle old mining methods in detail. An elevated appreciation is gained here of the men and women who spent part of their lives in mining with this equipment. Today, historians and collectors pay respect to those people as they preserve and interpret the equipment that remains. This is an important and valuable reference for all concerned.

A very complete look at mining collectables. Gives a general price guide. I bought it for information on ore cars. Although it was limited to a few types of ore cars it was helpfull. I recomend this to anyone who is interested in mine artifacts.
