|Scope & content
A detailed description in three parts of farm mills in the Black Forest.The first part covers the history of mills: not only technical developments but also the changing laws governing them, which enabled farms to have their own mills rather than taking their grain to specified millers. It also describes the development of mill design.
The second part looks in detail at farm mills specifically in the Black Forest. It describes every aspect of their design, including equations for calculating maximum efficiency of the different components.The last part lists the 277 mills registered in the Black Forest, with sketch maps of their locations, and details (including detailed plans) of some that have been expertly preserved.The book contains a large number of black-and-white photographs and numerous diagrams illustrating the principles of the components described in the second part, how they are assembled, and how different types of the same component differ from each other.
