This instructional handbook was originally written and published by Oliver Evans (1755-1819). In the late 1700s, Evans developed a continuous conveyor system for milling flour. The Young Mill-Wright and Miller’s Guide explained his labor-saving innovations through text and technical illustrations. Published in fifteen editions between 1795 and 1860, the influential book helped revolutionize the flour-milling industry.
