Excerpt from Metallurgy: The Art of Extracting Metals From Their Ores, and Adapting Them to Various Purposes of Manufacture; Iron and Steel

But to no one is the Author more indebted than his colleague, Mr. Richard Smith, not only for his experimental and analytical labours, but also for his assistance in the correction of the press. Mr. Smith is the author of the article on the Assaying of Iron Ores.

The labours of Mr. R. W. Mallett, the draughtsman, and Mr. James Cooper, the engraver, of the illustrations in these volumes should not be passed over in silence. It is not possible that greater earnestness should have been displayed in their work, or more conscientiousness in their efforts to attain accuracy of delinea tion. In the majority of instances the original drawings have been presented to the Author: had it been otherwise, the outlay required for the illustrations, already very considerable, would have been largely augmented, and the price of these volumes greatly enhanced. In nearly every case the woodcuts have been examined by the managers of the works to which they refer, and the descriptions of the processes have also been revised on the spot by the same experienced authorities.
