"The book consists of a general introduction which reviews the development of the region and its links with the Industrial Revolution (underpinned, of course, by the minerals!), chapters on the geology and mineral deposits to put the minerals into context, and then county by county descriptions of the minerals – Cheshire, Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Leicestershire and Rutland, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, West Midlands, Worcestershire.
Following the regional descriptions are three chapters looking at historical collectors and collections associated with the area, a brief review of mineral dealing, and a short look at decorative stones (alabaster, Ashford Black Marble and of course Blue John).
An extensive bibliography is provided and a comprehensive index, so the book should hopefully provide a good reference source and start point for future researchers."
