Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

Across the wide continent are living mines with nostalgic names, Great Boulder, Hercules, Rum Jungle, and Nobles Nob. There are metal towns that glow on the dark plain at night, railways that stretch straight toward a distant coast, cages that rush men down deep shafts. There are acres of metal refineries and smelters by the seaboard, mines in the forest below snowed mountains and mines by the warm

ocean, but most mines are out in the arid wastelands. They have long yielded much of the world's precious base and metals, and they have moulded much of Australia's history. 245 x 155 mm., pp. xiv, 431, black & white plates, Glossary of Mining Terms, bibliography, index. Hard cover (without dust jacket as issued). Fully bound in Faux leather, Gold blocked front & spine. Contents, SIGNED by GEOFFREY BLAINEY ('Best Wishes Geoffrey Blainey') on Title page; boards gold blocked with Title/Author and WMC Logo and 'Presented by WMC Resources' at bottom. FINE.
