The Art of Lead Burning Description

Excerpt from The Art of Lead Burning: A Practical Treatise Explaining the Apparatus and Processes, 52 Illustrations The mystery which has always surrounded the work of the lead burner, like that of all other handicrafts outside of ordinary occupations, dissolves under the light of a full knowledge of the causes and effects that have a bearing upon it. While different works have treated on lead burning, it is the object of this special treatise to explain fully in detail every part of the apparatus and fixtures in common use, as well as their application, so that the careful reader may understand and acquire the art of lead burning by observing scrupulously the rules laid down and devoting sufficient time to practice to master it. This instruction, given by text and illustration, is only presented after the dangerous power of hydrogen gas when misused is thoroughly impressed on the reader. It would be well for all who hope to become lead burners to devote several evenings, with an interval between, to a thorough study of the chapters on hydrogen gas and its properties before taking any further steps.
