THE present volume may in some sense be considered as an outgrowth of the authors previous work on cementing materials, for it deals with natural materials which are closely related, either as constituents or as competitors, to the manufactured products therein discussed. It may be noted that little space has been devoted to a de- scription of the local distribution of building stones and clays. The inclusion of such data, relative to products which are naturally so common and so widely distributed, tends to convert a general treatise into a mere directory of the quarry and clay product industries. The extensive reference lists which are presented, however, will serve to point out where information re- garding the stone or clays of any particular state may be found. Attention should also be directed to the chapters relative to the examination and valuation of clay and stone properties. So far as known to the writer, most of the material therein presented has not been touched upon in earlier works on these subjects. WASHINGTON, D. C. January 13, 1912. EDWIN C. ECKEL.
