Originally published in 1913, this classic Goldsmith's Handbook (8th Edition) contains full instructions for the alloying and working of gold, including the art of alloying, melting, reducing, coloring, collecting and refining; the processes of manipulation, recovery of waste, chemical and physical properties of gold; with a new system of mixing its alloys; solders, enamels, and other useful rules and recipes.
The chief merit of the work is its practical character, i.e. practically treating on the uses and applications of gold. The book has passed through the ordeal of critical examination and business tests with great success, and should be on the shelf of every practical gold-worker.
