This text deals with non-frrous metals and the general plan followed it to consider the name of each metal, its chemical and physical property, the alloy of which it is a chief constituent, its composition, the chief ores and the processes by which the metal is extracted from them as well as the principles and conditions on which the processes depend and examples of actual practice followed at the present time in important extraction works. Much that is not essential and processes which are obsolete have been omitted. many of the illustrations are original and a number of others have been selected from papers by well-known metallurgists, the sources in all cases being acknowledged.
