Republished with plans sketches and Covers a period in which the industry emerged from late medieval decline into a phase of rapid growth, thanks to the introduction of new smelting techniques and greater capital resources from landowners.

The lead trade, chiefly through Bawtry, where the merchants helped to develop port facilities, is also described, as is the manufacture and distribution of finished products.
