About this Item: Trieste Publishing. Paperback. Condition: New. 240 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 0.5in.Trieste Publishing has a massive catalogue of classic book titles. Our aim is to provide readers with the highest quality reproductions of fiction and non-fiction literature that has stood the test of time. The many thousands of books in our collection have been sourced from libraries and private collections around the world. The titles that Trieste Publishing has chosen to be part of the collection have been scanned to simulate the original. Our readers see the books the same way that their first readers did decades or a hundred or more years ago. Books from that period are often spoiled by imperfections that did not exist in the original. Imperfections could be in the form of blurred text, photographs, or missing pages. It is highly unlikely that this would occur with one of our books. Our extensive quality control ensures that the readers of Trieste Publishings books will be delighted with their purchase. Our staff has thoroughly reviewed every page of all the books in the collection, repairing, or if necessary, rejecting titles that are not of the highest quality. This process ensures that the reader of one of Trieste Publishings titles receives a volume that faithfully reproduces the original, and to the maximum degree possible, gives them the experience of owning the original work. We pride ourselves on not only creating a pathway to an extensive reservoir of books of the finest quality, but also providing value to every one of our readers. Generally, Trieste books are purchased singly - on demand, however they may also be purchased in bulk. Readers interested in bulk purchases are invited to contact us directly to enquire about our tailored bulk rates. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9780649053001

About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from A History of the Precious Metals: From the Earliest to the Present Del Mar s History of the Precious Metals was begun in 1858, laid aside in 1862, when the author published his first work on Money, resumed in 1869, completed in 1879, and published during the fol lowing year by Messrs. Geo. Bell Sons, of London. The merits of the work were at once recognized by the literary press, portions of it were translated and republished with approbation by the journal dc: Economist and other Continental journals, and the edition was soon exhausted. But until within late years the author s occupation as a Mining Engineer took him so far afield that he found it imprac ticable to revise the work for a second publication: a task which he always expressed himself anxious to accomplish. The plan of the present work embraces a history of the precious metals in each important country by itself, from the earliest times to the present. After this, the subject is treated from a general stand point; the produce of the world at various epochs is brought to gether, the consumption in the arts and for coinage is shown, to gether with the resulting stocks on hand in the form of coins and bullion. This is the framing of the work: the body of it is filled with the most interesting and in some instances very important historical material. The history of the Veneti of Pontus, an ancient race of miners who settled in Greece and N orth Germany, and afterwards in Italy at a very remote period, is here brought to light for the first time; the Tschudic remains found in the Siberian tundras; and the Roman mining laws of the Peak of Derby, which are still en forced, are among the strikingly original subjects treated in this volume. The South American Revolution of 1732, and the system of contract-labour which prevails to-day in the Mysore and British South African gold mines, to the disadvantage of australia, california, Colorado, and the free mining States generally, are also new lights shed upon a little understood, but highly important, subject.

About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from A History of the Precious Metals: From the Earliest to the Present Del Mar s History of the Precious Metals was begun in 1858, laid aside in 1862, when the author published his first work on Money, resumed in 1869, completed in 1879, and published during the fol lowing year by Messrs. Geo. Bell Sons, of London. The merits of the work were at once recognized by the literary press, portions of it were translated and republished with approbation by the journal dc: Economist and other Continental journals, and the edition was soon exhausted. But until within late years the author s occupation as a Mining Engineer took him so far afield that he found it imprac ticable to revise the work for a second publication: a task which he always expressed himself anxious to accomplish. The plan of the present work embraces a history of the precious metals in each important country by itself, from the earliest times to the present. After this, the subject is treated from a general stand point; the produce of the world at various epochs is brought to gether, the consumption in the arts and for coinage is shown, to gether with the resulting stocks on hand in the form of coins and bullion. This is the framing of the work: the body of it is filled with the most interesting and in some instances very important historical material. The history of the Veneti of Pontus, an ancient race of miners who settled in Greece and N orth Germany, and afterwards in Italy at a very remote period, is here brought to light for the first time; the Tschudic remains found in the Siberian tundras; and the Roman mining laws of the Peak of Derby, which are still en forced, are among the strikingly original subjects treated in this volume. The South American Revolution of 1732, and the system of contract-labour which prevails to-day in the Mysore and British South African gold mines, to the disadvantage of australia, california, Colorado, and the free mining States generally, are also new lights shed upon a little understood, but highly important, subject.
