70 illustrations. This authoritatively written and lavishly illustrated book is a tribute to the traditional windmill, once an integral part of the working environment but nowadays too often neglected and considered an industrial and rural anachronism. Before steam power, windmills, along with waterwheels, were the only means available for drawing water and powering machinery. Their tall towers and billowing sails were a picturesque part of the European landscape, and many remain today to remind us of the past. Here, their full history and the story of their survival is presented, along with 70 full-color photographs and archival illustrations.
