'In writing the book the author has drawn on his extensive research and experience as well as on the literature. All the main aspects of clays and raw materials have been presented: namely, structure, geology, occurrence, physical and chemical properties, rheology, plasticity and methods of identification, have been included. Of particular interest to those engaged in research are the sections on rational analysis and the calculation of ionic formulae. Chapters on silica, alumina, fluxes, bone, gypsum products and miscellaneous refractory oxides are also included.'
