(Environment) THE ECONOMICAL BURNING OF COAL WITHOUT SMOKE with Especial Reference to the Use of Washed Coal. By A. Bement, Member American Institute of Mining Engineers. "Published for private circulation by Peabody Coal Company, Chicago, 1904." Unusually rare, early work on the evironmental preparation of coal for clean burning. I couldn't find another copy offered for sale. 12mo size book, original white titled gray clth binding, the front cover with a stamped illustration of stacks belching smoke. The binding with overall lite wear, some fading, a touch of soil, some 'bubbling' of the cloth from the boards, cover illustration in part dull with some fading; tight sound condition. 48-pages of text plus four full-page photo illustrations of coal processing facilities. Last four or five leaves with visible damp-stain along inner hinge, a few short pencil marginal lines, one page with a tear though complete, some waviness along the text hinges throughout from moisture, couple of hinges weak.
