The Origin and Nature of Tin Bounds: or; Mining Rights of the Cornish Tin Miners (Paperback)
Mining historian Kerby Jackson introduces us to a work on Mining Law in this important re-issue of "Inquiry into the Origin and Nature of Tin Bounds". Unavailable since 1838, this publication offers rare insights into the mining rights or "tin bounds" of early British tin miners in Cornwall and elsewhere. Included are details on the early origins of European mining laws and individual mining rights starting in Bohemia and Moravia in the 13th century and their eventual spread into the tin placer fields of Cornwall.
