Originally entitled: ‘Iron making in the olden times — as instanced by the ancient mines, forges and furnaces of the Forest of Dean, historically related, on the basis of contemporary records’. From the cover: “This book is a reprint of one of the most interesting early historical accounts of the Forest of Dean. First published in 1866 and long out of print it has been a much sought after book among those interested in Forest history. The author, the Rev. H.G. Nicholls, was vicar of Holy Trinity Church, Drybrook from 1847-1866 and none of the character of his delightful and charmingly presented little book has been lost in this new edition.”
