Ex library white call numbers at foot of spine, bookplates of the University of Hartford and the Library Company of Philadelphia, rubber stamps. Very good. FIRST EDITION. The first part of this two-part paper provides an historical introduction to Faraday's work on steel alloys based on archival research and an evaluation of the value of Faraday's metallurgical work. Part two provides a thorough metallurgical study of the specimens of Faraday and Stodart's alloys. Sir Robert Hadfield came from a family of English metallurgists, setting up his first laboratory at his father's works in 1880 and made many important contributions in alloy studies. "Hadfield took a broad view of his subject and was a pioneer in the experimental investigation of historical metallurgical problems. He studied the Delhi Iron Pillar (fourth century A.D.) and the Faraday-Stodart alloys of 1818-1822." DSB, VI, p. 5. First Edition.
