On the Alloys of steel. Read March 21, 1822.
PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST. First Edition, extracted from The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1822 - Part II. Pp. 273-270. quarto, disbound, a very good copy, London, The Royal Society, 1822. First appearance of a founding paper in the science of alloys. "Beyond his work in analytical and pure chemistry, Faraday showed himself to be a pioneer in the application of chemistry to problems of technology. In 1818, together with James Stodart, a cutler, he began a series of experiments on the alloys of steel. Although he was able to produce alloys of superior quality, they were not capable of commercial production because they required the use of such rare metals as platinum, rhodium, and silver. Nevertheless, Faraday demonstrated that the increasingly urgent problem of producing higher-grade steel could be attacked by science. The later work on steel of Henry Sorby, Henry Bessemer, and Robert A. Hadfield was based directly on Faraday's work in the early part of the century." (DSB IV, p. 531-532). (Book ref. 22090) £300.00
