Robert Hunt A4 PB100pp

An account of the mines and refining methods of the 1870's written by Robert Hunt who was keeper of Mining Records at the time and originally published in Ure's Dictionary of Arts, Manufactures and Mines of 1878. This is a facsimile reprint although the text has been enlarged by 30% for improved clarity. The book covers the production and uses of the two metals. Both metals were of growing Industrial importance in the 19th Century. They were used in alloys and for the protective plating in tin plate and galvanised iron. Tin Compounds also had an important use in the textile trade, as mordents in the dyeing process.
