   Serpentine, by Michael Sagar-Fenton with Stuart B Smith.

   First Published in 2005 by Truran.

   ISBN 1 85022 199 5

This excellent publication came out in December 2005 to coincide with an exhibition on serpentine objects, souvenirs and museum pieces held at the Penlee House Gallery and Museum in Penzance. Probably for the first time in over 100 years a collection of items from private collectors together with tools and ephemera supplied by local serpentine workers, was on show to the public. This book was launched at the same time and covers the history in detail with many black and white archive photographs together with coloured photographs taken from private collections.

The book was a limited run and there may be still some copies available. In the first instance it is best to write to Penlee House Gallery and Museum, Morrab Road, Penzance, Cornwall. TR18 4HE and enquire whether or not there are any remaining copies for sale; and if so then the cost to include post and package to you. Do not forget to include a stamped addressed envelope for a reply.

I understand that a reprint may be considered and will, as with usual with reference books, be updated to include new research etc.
