This 9 x 6", dark red hard-covered book, with gold lettering, was published by – The American Society for Metals,

1940, 7th Printing 1951. The authors are, George Sachs, Dipl., Ing., D. Eng., ‘Case School of Applied Science’, and Kent R. Van Horn, B.S., M.S., Ph. D., ‘Aluminum Co. of America’. The completed title is: Applied Physical Metallurgy and the Industrial Processing of Ferrous and Nonferrous Metals and Alloys. (Now that is a mouthful!). This 550-plus pages book is extensively descriptive in this topic. Included are: Charts, Tables, Graphs, (b & w) photos and illustrations. The book is in amazingly ‘new’ condition – almost inside and out! The only thing you will see is that the former owner wrote in pencil on the inside cover page: "Used In Heat Treating Course, A.S.M. – Detroit ‘57", and that it had once sat on a bookshelf – but, you have to squint to see even that! Also included is a 3-page paper insert reprinted from, "Metals and Alloys, Jan. 1937". The subject is: "The Process and Result of Austenite Transformation at Constant Temperature". It is in black and white and a small graph is included. It has been quarter-folded, and shows some of its age, but it is still in good condition! The book, and insert will be a great addition to any unique collection!
