297 x 233 mm. 4to. Pages 339-349. 1 fig., 1 table, 1 lithographic plate. Dis-bound. In 1885 Roberts-Austen "began a study of the effect of small amounts of impurity on the tensile strength of standard gold. This work was developed in the next few years and was considered in a paper of 1888 that was an early example of the interpretation of the properties of a range of elements in terms of the periodic classification of the elements." DSB. "As the outcome of a research on the effects of admixture of impurities on the mechanical properties of pure metals, the alloys-research committee of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers was established (1889)." - DNB. William Roberts-Austen became chemist and assayer of the mint in 1882 and held that post until his death. DNB, 1901-1911, pp. 212-213; DSB, XI, pp. 485-486.
