Book 1 - FAMOUS GOLD NUGGETS OF THE WORLD
"In these days of wonderful gold discoveries one is apt to forget the big finds of the past, which set the world wild with excitement and gave such impetus to mining about half a century ago. This brief account of famous gold nuggets will help to revive the memories of the golden days of Australia and California, and to show how history tends to repeat itself in gold mining as well as in other mundane affairs" ...Preface FAMOUS GOLD NUGGETS OF THE WORLD
Book 2 - PROSPECTING FOR GOLD AND SILVER
"In preparing this little work the author has felt the difficulty which arises in a theoretical dissertation on so eminently practical a subject as prospecting. It seems like giving rules and prescriptions for hunting or fishing or any other natural or practical pursuit. Though theory and practice are not at variance when happily combined, yet either without the other proves very unsatisfactory. ...Thus the reader of this book, should he start out armed only with its theory, will find himself for some time pretty much at sea when he comes to actual practice in the field." ..Preface - Prospecting for Gold and Silver
Book 3 - Drilling For Placer Gold
"The Keystone Drill, as universally used, is not an instrument of precision. Gold particles are not distributed with mathematical symmetry. One drill hole to an acre in ground that is 50 feet in depth only yields for examination Hw.ooo part of the whole! Ordinary common sense and care on the part of the operator and panner are sufficient to insure acceptable field work. Meticulous precision or elaborate core measurements are generally absurd. "
..Preface Drilling for Placer Gold
Book 4 - DIAMOND DRILLING FOR GOLD AND OTHER MINERALS
"A PRACTICAL HANDBOOK ON THE USE OF MODERN DIAMOND CORE DRILLS IN PROSPECTING AND EXPLOITING MINERAL-BEARING PROPERTIES"
..DIAMOND DRILLING FOR GOLD AND OTHER MINERALS

Book 8 - Australian Mining and Metallurgy
Book 9 - The Australian Continent And Tasmania Catalogue Of Works Papers Reports And Maps, On The Geology, Paleontology, Mineralogy, Mining And Metallurgy
"The Bibliography of Geology and allied Sciences has of late years reached such formidable proportions that without aid derived from Catalogues similar to the present, any attempt to master their literature, would be futile. The Catalogue of "Works, Papers, Reports, and Maps originated concurrently with the catalogue of Australian Fossils," by one of us, and may be looked upon as a further expansion of the List given at the end of that work." ..Preface
Book 10 - HANDBOOK OF MINING - DETAILS COMPILED FROM THE ENGINEERING AND MINING JOURNAL
In 1912 We published the first "Handbook of Mining Details," the
purpose and scope of which were briefly outlined in the preface as follows:
"This book is a collection of articles that have appeared in the Engineering and Mining Journal during the last two or three years under the general head of "Details of Practical Mining" a department of the Journal that has been appreciated highly by its readers, many of whom have expressed the wish that a collection in book form be made, which has now been done."
-Preface HANDBOOK OF MINING
Book 11 - Opals And Agates Or Scenes Under The Southern Cross And The Magelhans
THE AUTHOR DEDICATES THIS BOOK TO THE GIRL PATRIOTS, PAST AND PRESENT, OF AUSTRALASIA,"At the suggestion of friends, I have herein collated, for publication, some rambling recollections, drawn from a diary that was first started in 1846. 1 hold that, neither the era of Dampier (circa 1690), nor of Cook (in 1770), nor of Macquarie (in 1820), bears so deep an interest for posterity as those fateful, stirring years, during which, thanks to her gold, Australia rose, from being a mere convicts' wilderness, to become one of the most advanced and interesting countries in the world. And, besides this, not only is truth, at times, stranger, and more readable, than fiction, but a book, which is destitute, alike, of dialogue, plot, or hero, and in no way built upon the orthodox lines of the three-volume novel, may still if it follows humbly in the wake of such guides as " Robinson Crusoe," or the " Essays of Elia "hope to find some readers ; so, I venture." - Preface Opals And Agates Or Scenes Under The Southern Cross And The Magelhans

Book 19 - Getting Gold: A Practical Treatise for Prospectors, Miners, and Students
"From the great value of gold, the fact that it is easily recognizable, and that it is found in a marketable state in river and other sands, there is probably no other industry in which so many incompetent persons have engaged as in searching for and attempting to get gold. Most of these people had never done any manual labour, neither had they capital or experience, and it is not surprising under these circumstances that there were more blanks than prizes. "
