    Abstract

    MR. WANG observes in his preface that a metallurgical work in English by a Chinese author is unusual. After reading the book, the conclusion is irresistible that English metallurgists would gain if Chinese authors were more numerous. Mr. Wang has treated his subject with the greatest respect, and has drawn up with methodical care a complete treatise which will be very useful to all students of the subject. The long and apparently exhaustive bibliography at Ihe end of each chapter would alone give the book a right to a place on metallurgists' shelves, but in many cases the facts are sufficiently set forth in the present work.

    Antimony: its History, Chemistry, Mineralogy, Geology, Metallurgy, Uses, Preparations, Analysis, Production, and Valuation; with complete Bibliographies for Students, Manufacturers, and Users of Antimony.
