Wollaston’s Classic Lecture on Platinum

As the first in a series of ‘Metallurgical Classics’ the American Society for Metals has published in the December 1967 issue of its Transactions a reproduction in facsimile of W. H. Wollaston’s Bakerian Lecture of 1829 to the Royal Society, ‘On a Method of Rendering Platina Malleable’. This is accompanied by an extensive commentary on Wollaston’s life and work, and on the significance of his contribution, by Professor Joseph Gurland of Brown University.
