German machine industry
Der Goldbergbau in der südafrikanischen Republik Transvaal und seine Bedeutung für die deutsche Mashinenindustrie
Gold mining in the South African Transvaal Republic and its meaning for the German machine industry.
This separately-published article from the Zeitschrift des Vereines deutscher Ingenieurs (Journal of the Association of German Engineers) published in 1894 looks at the effect that the burgeoning South African gold mining was having and would have on Germany. Economic historians and anyone interested in the history of gold mining will find this contemporary international perspective useful and interesting.
