Minutes of the Chesterfield Canal Company

by Christine Richardson

A complete transcript, with introduction and biographical notes, of the only surviving minute book of this concern, covering the period of the canal's construction by James Brindley and his associates. This is the first occasion on which a canal minute book has been published in full and the volume throws a great deal of light on trade and industry in both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, as well as the day-to-day business of building a major canal.
