Condition: Very Good. Slightly bruised at the top corners. Boards slightly dusty
From the preface: “The dictionary has been considerably expanded to take account of new developments in engineering ceramics, electroceramics; of new processes in whitewares; of new machinery and new test methods; of the impact of environmental legislation. The same broad scope has been adopted and coverage of glass, vitreous enamel and cement industries widened. It has seemed wise, in an industry which has moved much further to being science-based rather than craft-based, to include some terminology in relevant areas of basic science — in particular crystal structure, fracture mechanics and sintering. Here, and for some advanced ceramics produced in a wide variety of forms, some longer entries have been introduced to avoid extensive use of cross-references and to provide a coherent understanding of closely-related materials and processes.”
