      The books to which Mark Griffin was referring are Minerals of Northern England (Symes and Young, 2008), Minerals of Scotland (Livingstone, 2002), A Mineralogy of Wales (Bevins, 1994), and there are two earlier books Minerals of the English Lake District, Caldbeck Fells (Cooper and Stanley) and Minerals of Cornwall and Devon, which started it all off, by Peter Embrey and Bob Symes (1987). The books are all broadly similar in style and format but have been published by different organisations over the years. You should be able to find a used copy of most of them on ABE Books or similar internet retailers. National Museums Scotland still has a few copies of Alec Livingstone’s book available, and also has stock of Minerals of Northern England see http://shop.nms.ac.uk/collections/books-natural-science, A Mineralogy of Wales is available on ABE Books see for example http://www.abebooks.co.uk/9780720004038/Mineralogy-Wales-Geological-Bevins-R.E-0720004039/plp . Minerals of Caldbeck Fells and Cornwall and Devon are both long out of print, but widely available secondhand. Hope that helps.
