This text contains a detailed treatise on Aluminium, and includes a wealth of information on aspects such as its history, occurrence, properties, metallurgy and applications, its alloys, and much more besides. Although an antique text, much of the information contained herein is still very much relevant and, as such, this text will be of significant value to those with an interest in aluminum and its various properties and uses. The chapters of this book include: 'History of Aluminium', 'Occurrence of Aluminium in Nature', 'Physical Properties of Aluminium', 'Chemical Properties of Aluminium', 'Metallurgy of Aluminium', 'The Manufacture of Sodium', 'Manufacture of Alumina', 'Manufacture of the Double Chloride of Aluminium and Sodium', etcetera. Many old books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and costly, and it is with this in mind that we are proud to be publishing this text here for the enjoyment of those interested.
