A4, a new book, hardback, great quality. Drawings by John Brandrick. Very heavy book!
Last few copies; the hardly noticeable slight knock at top RH corner, does not affect the very positive impression this book makes. Harris’ book in the in-depth introduction to watermills and stoneground flour milling that an inquisitive novice needs. It is a book that aims to give in a simple way, a thorough understanding of stoneground milling terminology, mill technology and mill practices. Using easy-to-follow text plus numerous drawings and photographs, it guides the reader through the various elements that go to make up a working watermill. From explaining the different types of cereals that are likely to have been processed in millstone mills, through the history of watermills, to the buildings design and layout. It continues by explaining the need for the various machinery components found in watermills and how they work. Only then does it describe how wheat is ground into meal and how that meal is processed further to make white flour.
