The Notebook of a Devon Great Consols Mine Captain: 1886 – 1900 ,

written by William Woolcock.his notebook has been transcribed by Rick Stewart and Robert Waterhouse,, Sb, A4, 68pp, The years covered in the diary find this once great copper mine struggling to survive mainly through sales of arsenic. This was also the period when Devon Great Consols was engaged in an ultimately fruitless search for tin at depth. Woolcock working at Wheal Emma was much involved in this

Good of you to flag this up.

In addition to the transcription, Woolock's notebook has also been heavily annotated by Robert & I. There are also additional chapters covering William Woolcock's life & career, the latter days at DGC and Wheal Emma.

Cover price will be somewhere around £11.
