Corrosion—Some Causes and Remedies


TWO years age May 23, 1925, p. 793) the first edition of Mr. Evans's book was reviewed by the present writer in the columns of NATURE. Its good qualities have evidently been widely recognised, since a second edition has recently been published. The author states in his preface to this that progress made during this period in the understanding of the processes of corrosion has made so many additions necessary, that it has taken him longer to write the second edition than the first. The same general arrangement has been preserved, and he has adhered to the policy of giving a concise statement of the subject in the text accompanied by numerous references in the foot-notes to papers where further details can be sought on any particular point of interest. The net result is the production of a book some forty pages longer than the original volume and the published price has been slightly increased.
