Economics of South African Gold Mining

R. E. & A. S. Robertson Wallace

  • Edition: First Edition
  • Book condition: Near Fine Condition
  • Quantity available: 1
Radford Adlington Ltd, Johannesburg, South Africa, 1951. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. Illustrator: John L. Turner. To the front are: preface; detailed contents list; list of plates & glossary of mining terms. The lack of a book of general reference on gold mining shares, and particularly one which includes a reference to the interpretation of reports, has been felt for many years. Perhaps because of this the investing public has not been in the best position to make full use of the wealth of information published, not only by the mines and mining groups but also by the Transvaal Chamber of Mines. It is hoped that this small volume will help to meet this need in the future. The original intention was to confine the book to an interpretation of reports - the subject matter of Part II of the book - but it was felt that it would then be incomplete. An attempt has, therefore, been made to give a concise outline of the principal geological features and of ... Read more

Cassell, London, 1978. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Good.

Spur Publications Company, Liss, Hampshire, 1976. Second Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good Condition/Good. This is a concise history of the Shire Horse. It traces the evolution of the Great Horse from the chariot horse of the ancient Britons, through the centuries, showing how the functional requirements fashioned the characteristics seen today. There are many interesting facts which emerge. As oxen were replaced by horses strong, heavy animals were required. Linked with this fact, was the introduction of laws which fostered the development of the breed. Besides giving service as War Horses they were also used for pulling carriages. This book was originally published as The Great Horse or Shire Horse in the heyday of the breed. Since then there has been a decline in the breed and, more recently, a renewed interest in reviving the Great Horse not only as an animal held with great affection, but also as a working horse. A brief note on the present state of the Shire Horse Society brings the descrip ... Read more

Near Fine/Near Fine. silver titles spine; blind-stamped series title (Milestones of Thought) front; "this work sums up a basic development of intellectual history - a controversy that agitated religious thought during the Age of Enlightenment. The problems posed by the Deists and their opponents are still very much alive today, as is the issue of the relation of the Christian faith to other religions.

Works by Locke, the literary source of the main British development, and by Berkeley, Butler, and Hume are not represented as they are available elsewhere. Professor Waring& ... Read more
