From the Foreword. . . This monograph presents the first new compilation on lead technology in a half-century. . .. ILZRO [The International Lead Zinc Research Organization] is pleased to have sponsored the work of Prof. Guruswamy and trusts that his efforts will assure that modern technical knowledge of the properties of this ancient metal will be readily available to technologists in the new century nearly upon us.
