Excerpt from The Manufacture of Leather The manufacture of leather is now a chemical industry, and in this volume it has been the author's aim to treat it as such. The book is written for the general student of this branch of chemical technology, and an attempt has therefore been made on the one hand to keep the phraseology from being too scientific, in order that it may be intelligible to the intelligent workman, and on the other hand to keep it from being too technical in order that it may be of use to the pure chemist who wishes to apply his knowledge in the leather industry. On the technical side the author has endeavoured in his descriptions of practical methods to give prominence to those processes which are at present most widely used, but as the details of these processes vary so very much in different parts of the country and change so rapidly under the march of modern progress, it has been considered useless to enter into a minute description of them. At the most they may be taken as to some extent typical of what is employed in this country, and in no case is it claimed that the methods described will pro duce the best possible results. This is particularly true with regard to the finishing processes that are given. The reader who scans the later chapters of this book in the hope of dis covering new and wonderful recipes for seasons, finishes, etc., will search in vain. For the most part the recipes mentioned in the text are old and well known, and have been selected by the author merely from the standpoint of what was typical.
