Book Description IMM, N.p. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine Slipcase. This a Facsimile reprint of this ancient mining work first published in 1670 , by Sir John Pettus who was the Deputy governor of the Royal Mines. Exceedingly scarce. This facsimile edition gives no information on when or where it was produced. On the base of the spine is IMM which I assume is some sort of mining organization but gives no date ( Iwould guess late 70's) and no place of publication. Book is fine except for a blind stamp of former owner used on title page. Seller Inventory # 000812
