Chapters include raw materials for cements, concretes and bricks; methods of manufacturing; chemical and physical changes in preparation of these materials; testing their properties, and more. One of the first books written by someone with scientific training who could adequately study and discuss the constitution of the materials and the chemical and physical changes that occur during manufacturing. Very scarce; no other copies available anywhere.
