This book arose out of a need for a general work on brass and zinc, linking the developments of the various periods and places into a comprehensive whole. It describes the inception and technical development of the processes by which zinc and brass were made at various centres around the world, together with typical compositions of the resulting brasses. The volume shows that the technical developments were in fact continuous and consciously related from the ancient to the modern world. The revised edition incorporates new discoveries such as finds of metallic zinc from Roman Age sites in Europe.
