A rare opportunity to obtain this seminal four volume work at a reasonable price. The books are in excellent condition; the price is lower because they are stamped by the University College of North Wales.
Numerous black and white illustrations.
“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.
