“We have long been impressed by the scantiness of the bibliography of corn milling; and had felt it strange that in this literary age - while, on the one hand, there should be extant various valuable milling works of a technical character, and an excellent milling press - yet that, on the other hand, there should be available no published history, however crude, of the origin and progress of this ancient and important industry.” - from Preface.
