Abstract

From its small beginning in 1912, the writing of the Comprehensive Treatise was finished in February 1935. The work took its toll. During the writing of the last four volumes Mellor was a ‘very sick man’. This page proof, stamped 4 December 1936 by the printers Wm. Clowes and Sons, is one of the 417 pages Mellor wrote on ‘Platinum’ for the sixteenth and final volume. It was proofed by L.S. Theobald, A.T. Green, and F.H. Clews. In November 1937, an anonymous reviewer in Chemistry and Industry Review wrote that the volumes were ‘the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science.’
