Palaeolithic Worked Flint Tools, Grand Pressigny, 1867 ~ Journal Offprint


Well, I’ve just successfully bid for a Journal Offprint on EBAY. It’s, On the worked flints of Pressigny Le Grand, by John Evans and is from Archaeolgia Volume 40, 1867. It contains; 8 pages, plus 2 full-page illustrations/line drawings of flint cores, flakes, scrapers etc., exceptional illustrations in the typical antiquarian style. And is described as a “must for anybody interested in early publications in connection with flint tools”. Quite a bargain, I thought at £7.99 + the excitement of an auction!

I’ll scan and post contents in a week or so when it arrives.
