"Nowhere in the world has metal mining been of greater importance than in Cornwall. The development, pioneered by Richard Trevithick, of the Cornish beam engine, enabled unparalleled productivity. This book introduces these remarkable engine houses by providing an illustrated guide to those in West Cornwall, using contemporary and archival photographs, brief descriptions, simple interpretations of their key features and short histories of the mines of which they were a part. Together the authors bring over a century of expertise to this fascinating guide."
