What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Pleasing Copy, Publishers' Original Binding, Very Scarce

This extensive work provides a complete account of the Metallurgical treatment of a range of metals, whilst examining the scientific principles underlying each process. Dr. Carl Schnabel was a German mining scientist and a renowned authority on metallurgy. This work is complete in two volumes, with the first examining the metallurgy of Copper, Lead, Silver, Gold. These have been grouped together because of their occurrence together in the same mineral deposits, and also due to the extensive methods employed in their extraction. Volume II examines 'the remaining metals': Zinc, Cadmium, Mercury, Bismuth, Tin, Antimony, Arsenic, Nickel, Cobalt, Platinum, and Aluminium. With numerous in-text illustrations throughout.
