Chroniclers record the name of a Franciscan friarone Berthold Schwartz, of Freiberg as the inventor, in or about the year 1328, of what has since been known as Gunpowder; although many records are in existence which indicate that prior to that date the Arabs knew the use of an explosive mixture which they called Medfaa. To whom the credit really belongs of inventing gunpowder is so far not cleared up, but there is no doubt that explosive mixtures existed and were utilised by the Chinese as far back as the beginning of the Christian era. The first advance leading to the introduction of the modern High Explosives was made in 1832 by the French chemist Barconnot, of Nancy, who discovered that when starch, fibres, and analogous substances are acted upon by concentrated nitric acid, they are changed into highly combustible materials. In 1838 Pelouze continued these researches, and he ascertained that this new inflammable materialwhich he called Xyloidine took fire at 1800 C. when submitted to strong pressure, such as a rapid blow. He also found that cotton, paper, and indeed all vegetable matters, could be employed in the preparation of similar substances.

This book has been carefully crafted to utilize the original images of antique books rather than error-prone OCR text. This also preserves the work of the original typesetters of these classics, unknown craftsmen who laid out the text, often by hand, of each and every page you will read. Their subtle art involving judgment and interaction with the text is in many ways superior and more human than the mechanical methods utilized today, and gave each book a unique, hand-crafted feel in its text that connected the reader organically to the art of bindery and book-making. We think these benefits are worth the occasional imperfection resulting from the age of these books at the time of scanning, and their vintage feel provides a connection to the past that goes beyond the mere words of the text.
