Windmills - A New History

outwood mill shop books windmills new history
Colin Moore has produced a very readable book that starts with a timeline that sets windmills into their full historic context. He then turns in greater detail to the workings of a windmill, particularly millstones and sails, and covers the developments that did not catch on as well as those that did. This attention to detail for the whole story, not just a description of the types that survive, makes this book stand out from the average mill book. More Info »
