"Written for all who are interested in mirrors; the manufacturer, his manager and his apprentice, for the practical experimentalist and, perhaps, even for the scientist and explorer of present and future possibilities. Part I provides a short survey of the whole field. Part II goes into detail, beginning with a brief history of mirrors and a fairly comprehensive description of all the silvering processes at present employed in the mirror and related industries. A chapter is devoted to the possibility of explosions, and the necessary precautions to avoid them. The appendices contain lists of literature, of learned and trade societies, schools, museums and patents - information which cannot be found anywhere else in such completeness." - dust jacket.
