They are pleased to say that Mr. McCarthy readily adopted their suggestion, and the present volume. Further Incidents in the Life of a Mining Engineer, is the result. The publishers believe that it will be found even more interesting than its predecessor, which is making a considerable claim for it.The proceeds of sale of the former volume have been devoted to the St. Dunstans Hostel for the Blind, and it is gratifying to state that nearly 800 have been handed by the Author to that most admirable Institution. Any profits that may be derived from the present book will be applied to the same purpose.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
