Alvaro Alonso Barba was a secular Catholic priest and metallurgist living in Potosi, Bolivia, during the period when its silver mines were most productive and luxury among the Spanish residents and mine owners had nearly reached its height. Originally published in 1640 in Madrid, it is the earliest work on South American ores and minerals. 288 pages divided into five books, or chapters: First Book] The Manner In Which Ores are Begotten, and the Things That Accompany Them; Second Book] Amalgamating Gold and Silver Ores; Third Book] Treatment of the Ores of Gold and Silver by Cooking (Pan Amalgamation); Fourth Book] The Reduction of all Classes of Ore by Smelting; Fifth Book] Refining and Parting Metals. Includes a few illustrations from the original book. Index in the rear. Bound in original yellow cloth with lettering and rule on the spine in black. A very good copy.
