Truro, United Kingdom Twelveheads Press, 1978 1st. ed. or.cl. d/w. cr.4to. pp.128. Canals were not a common Cornish feature while the Liskeard & Caradon Railway, which connected with the Liskeard & Looe Union Canal, was a unique horse drawn and gravity railway. Both served the Caradon Copper mines, whose story is perhaps is the most romantic in Cornish mining, and also the granite quarries and tin mines of this corner of the Bodmin Moor. Boom traffic caused the canal to be replaced with a railway but then the mining discovery that germinated, blossomed, withered and died, all within fifty years, but left the picturesque railway line to Looe. The mines failed and the railways' story leaves a unique transport system, built to service the bonanza of Caradon copper. It is a story of ingenuity and capability, of independence and interdependence, of hope and despair. It could only have happened in Victorian Britain. Near fine copy.   Price: $50.00
