Excerpt from Practical Instructions in Quantitative Assaying With the Blowpipe: Containing Also Readily Applied Qualitative Blowpipe Tests; For the Prospector, Miner, and Assayer, and for Use in Colleges

The Author has long believed that a practical, simple and at the same time cheap work on the blowpipe, that included quantitative assaying, f.would be appreciated by many who are inter I Vested in "mineral." This book is the result of that belief.

The methods of assaying by means of the blowpipe furnace, as advocated herein, I can recommend as more certain and practical in many cases than the old way. A larger quantity of ore is operated on, and the outcome does not depend so much on the skill, or want of skill, of the assayer.

Wet methods I have omitted: they to a great extent destroy some of the distinguishing merits of the blowpipe, - its quickness and simplicity. Moreover, when wet methods are combined with the use of the blowpipe it is very often either for purposes of Determinative Mineralogy or to detect substances that have little or no commercial value.
