Bauters, Paul - 1998, 2000 - van zAdelsteen tot Zetelkruier - 2000 jaar molens in Vlaanderen.
Volume I (1998): Geschiedenis (288pp.)
Volume II (2000): Bouw en werking van de molens met natuurlijke drijfkracht (367pp.)
Ed. Prov. Oost-Vlaanderen - Gent - Belgium

Splendid work about the history, construction, significance of water- and wind-mills in Flanders. Bauters explains how many mill-historians are ignorant about the evolution in Flanders because they can't understand Dutch. But - surprise! - the book is written in Dutch without any summary in any other language.
