LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Sydney: Government Printer, 1916. Large 8vo, printed boards; xiv, 200 pp (last blank); 7 maps (some folding), 28 photo plates and 45 figures through the text. The back board and inner hinges have been recently taped, internally near fine nonetheless. All maps are crisp and excellent and the plates retain their freshness. A comprehensive government report that seeks to encourage the expansion of the molybdenum industry in NSW. The photo plates are of interest to both the geologist and historian of Australian metallurgy as this work is published on the threshold of modern industrial extraction processes while numerous nineteenth century mechanisms are still in operation. The frontis shows a proud prospector with three huge slabs of molybdenum, all torn from the single mass.
