Mining & Mineralogy books from the library of George William Hall

9th April 2014 PLEASE NOTE: In general all books and journals are in good condition. The older items are typically as you would expect: somewhat dusty, faded, worn, and showing signs of usage. I will check the condition of particular items upon request. The list is arranged in alphabetical order by author, with periodicals at the end. Exact details of periodicals especially, subject to verification by buyer at collection. Items are to be collected by the purchaser: it is not practicable for me to arrange postal delivery (please ring to make arrangements). The books are located at my house near Oxford; the periodicals currently at my father, George's house in Ludlow. It may be possible to arrange movement between the two locations with plenty of notice. Payment can be made at the time of collection or in advance by bank transfer.
