Mill (83 Edition)by David Macaulay
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Well researched, ambitious, and absorbing, this first-rate history lesson details the construction of a spinning mill with a good deal of social history interwoven.
The mills at Wicksbridge are imaginary, but their planning, construction, and operation are quite typical of mills developed in New England throughout the nineteenth century.
