On offer is a very interesting, original 1940s through 1953 journal amazingly detailed and handwritten by the very active mining engineer Thomas Murdock, [while unidentified from within he is identified otherwise from the archive this diary is sourced from], who was well respected and from the USA and worked in both Chile and Africa, primarily the Congo and other mineral rich regions. This book is a very technical detailing of his daily responsibilities and activities as an engineer. In a precise hand Murdock lays out his conferences, publications and other writings, reports, results from his mostly Africa related activities and interests for various Belgian, African and other organizations. A typical title of the daily entry "The Inter African Soils Conference At Goma" Or "Some Notes On The Mufulira Copper Mine, Northern Rhodesia" and "The Operations Of The Belgian Congo Diamond Companies" just to name a few. Overall G+.
