Normally £35 , I'm offering this for £10 + postage, I can email a photo if you are interested

During the Xmas rush a copy of this book was delivered by a careless courier and has split the top inch of the spine otherwise the book is in tip top condition. The author has given me permission to sell it off cheaply (Unfortunately the customer didn't open the package until Xmas day and didn't report it to me until the new year . As that was over 14 days after delivery the company insurance no longer accepted responsibility and refused my claim, worth noting if you have stuff delivered by a courier check immediately otherwise t could cost you) The book is excellent and there is an index showing the counties and areas covered

Minerals of the English Midlands Author Roy Starkey, Sb, 432 large format pages (276 × 218 mm); 943 illustrations; 1000 references; comprehensive index.

The book explores the rich mineralogical heritage of the area, setting this into a regional, historical and economic context, and tracing the development of mineral exploitation from earliest times to the present day. Roy includes various mining sites and uses historical and present day Colour and B&W photographs .Mineral specimens from the area are recognised as being significant on a global scale, and are to be found in all major mineral collections, both within the UK and abroad. The author has been privileged to have obtained unprecedented access to both private and public collections, resulting in the inclusion of numerous, previously unpublished photographs of mineral specimens.
