Book Description Bobbs - Merrill Company, Indianapolis, IN, 1939. Hard Cover. Condition: Good +. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Stated First Edition. "Chemurgy" is defined as "chemistry at work," or, the science of devising useful and beneficial products from the soil, air, moisture, sunshine, or other natural resources; such as making nylon silk hose from coal, shaving lotion from peanuts, or asbestos from corn. The chemurgist figures out how to put any surplus or waste to good use. 303 pages, including index, red cloth boards with black decoration (five sets of horizontal, triple lines) and gold print on front and spine, top edge stained yellow, text has seven illustration plates. Boards are straight but mildly soiled/worn with rubbed and frayed spine ends and corners and a slightly faded spine; hinge is cracked inside about 3/4ths of the way through, but the binding is otherwise good; a list cut from the original dust jacket, "A Few of the Products of Chemurgy," is pasted inside the front cover, and a two-column synopsis of the book is pasted onto the rear endpapers (cut from the DJ flaps); front endpapers have previous owner's name and some notes from the book in light pencil, text is otherwise unmarked and in very good condition.
