Full Description

8vo. 236pp, many photo ills, also 116 text diagrams. Publisher’s cloth, bumped at head and foot of spine. Book label recording that this copy was a gift from the Ketton Portland Cement Co Limited to Eric Jarrett. The copy was subsequently in the Architectural Association’s Loan Library, with its bookplate, but the bookplate and the library accession number have been struck through, and the copy passed long ago into the possession of Brian Housden.

A very thorough technical explanation of the processes involved in the manufacture of cement and reinforced concrete. Section VI of the book is devoted to “photographs of typical examples of modern concrete construction”. First edition.
