Product Description:
Antique Mining Equipment and Collectibles 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. 160 page by David W. Pearson & Ron Bommarito , size is 8 1/2" x 11", soft cover with numerous illustrations and 459 color photos.

CUSTOMER REVIEW: If you are a student of mining history or a collector of western paraphernalia, you should buy this book. The authors have managed to track down most of the tools and other related historical items from the early days of mining. There is an abundance of information on small items such as candle-holders, carbide lamps, and assay tools plus the larger items such as ore carts, Pelton wheels, and stamp mills. Pictures of many items plus price ranges give the novice somewhere to begin and the more experienced collector, an excellent reference book.

About the Author David W. Pearson and Ron Bommarito both live near the Ludwig historic mining district of Nevada and are experienced, long-time students of mining and collectors of mining artifacts. They each have examined thousands of items in public and private collections and watched the evolving market carefully.
