History’s first clear, comprehensive work on metallurgy, first published in 1540, describing in detail the equipment and processes of 16th-century mining, smelting and metalworking. This is the definitive English translation, with a historical introduction to the author—a Siennese metallurgist and armament maker—and his work. Illustrated with reproductions of the 94 woodcuts that graced the original.
