Mine Pumping in Agricola's Time and Later

by Robert P. Multhauf

Coins are a source of information much used by historians. Elaborately detailed mining landscapes on 16th-century German coins in the National Museum, discovered by the curator of numismatics and brought to the authorís attention, led to this study of early mine-pumping devices.
