Water Powered Sawmills in Newfoundland

£40.00

Product description

Published by Robinson Blackmore Print. & Pub, St. John's, Newfoundland (1979).

First edition, signed inscription by the author dated 24th May 1979. Stapled Card Covers. Large Scale. Sketches and drawings of historic sawmills in Newfoundland.

From the Preface:
"This book is mainly the result of a family effort over the past three years. During the summer months the 'research crew' consisted of my wife, Geraldine, our son, Stirling (who was two-and-one-half years old when we began studying old sawmills), and myself. The winter months, when
we were confined to the environs of St. John's, offered time for reflection on past summer activities and opportunity for research, writing,
drawing and building working models. During our research we travelled extensively throughout Newfoundland and Great Britain and, in the
process, we experienced great satisfaction from these wonderful old mills of yesteryear."

CONDITION: Used, good. A few minor stains to the covers but otherwise a clean copy. Top staple at spine has detached at some point, presumably from rusting but has not damaged the book. Bottom staple still present but heavily rusted. (See photos)
