Illustrated with photographs, maps and diagrams, the book documents the history of the Orrell Coalfield, looks at technical developments, river and canal navigation, and also explores the social conditions of the miners at work, home and play.
The dustwrapper is clean, bright, and in fine condition.
The binding is tight, and the interior is unmarked and in fine condition.
A very nice copy indeed.
