from the Miller's Bookshelf
The Miller's Bookshelf was often located in the Miller's Office. Here
the Miller kept reference books and milling trade journals. Our Miller's
Bookshelf will feature abridged topics from some traditional milling books.
Depending upon the work, some items may appear with illustrations. The books
presented here may rotate over time and new chapters added to currently
presented books. The main topics selected are the history of milling, millstones,
roller mills, water power and water wheels. While reading, please consider
the time period of the work's original composition.
