Thanks for sharing.. I have a couple copies now of Vanishing, the other one I do not have.. I might try looking for the other one, that could be a good book for my collection.. Any pictures inside of it of the former mining complexes and stuff?

Old etchings, lithographs, and some pics.

A good, enjoyable book!
