A Treatise on Quantitative Inorganic Analysis
London: Charles Griffin and Co.
Exactly why Mellor approached Charles Griffin and Co. and not Longmans, Green and Co to publish this work and his Clay and Pottery Industries (1914), is unclear. Mellor states in the preface to this Treatise that ‘The processes here described are those at present used in the Testing Department of the County Pottery Laboratory, Staffordshire’, which is where Mellor worked from 1902. This volume is some 778 pages long and is just one of eleven works by Mellor which cumulatively totalled over 20,000 pages of text written over a period of 36 years. Incidentally, this does not include the 100 papers plus that he published. Mellor was extremely productive during his long career.
