Todd, Arthur Cecil, Bradford Barton, 1967, HB, 279pp

Once the world's greatest producer of copper and tin, by 1900 Cornwall was reduced to near economic ruin as more plentiful and more cheaply worked deposits had been discovered abroad, especially in America. Between 1840 and 1914, over one third of men in Cornwall left for the mining frontiers of the New World. This account details the contribution of the emigrant miners - the men called Cousin Jacks - to the mining history of the United States. (Very good condition)
