    Scope & contentSummary Translation

    The book describes the history and development of mills. The Hanover area had both water and windmills. They have left their mark on place names and feature on the coats of arms of towns and villages and on seals. The text describes the obligation to use certain mills, and then looks at specific mills and millers. Many mills have now disappeared.The book is richly illustrated with black-and-white photos of mills, their equipment and millers, and also contains some historic pictures and reproductions of documents.
