Description The Iron Manufacture of Great Britain de W Truran:

Excerpt from The Iron Manufacture of Great Britain: Theoretically and Practically Considered Among the manufactures of Great Britain, that of iron has recently risen to a magnitude which entitles it to rank as the most important, both as regards the value of the products. and the direct bearing they have on the progress of civilisation and commerce. Iron is a metal comparatively unknown in uncivilised districts, and it is worthy of remark that the production and consumption of this metal in proportion to the population is highest in nations excelling in commerce and the mechanic arts, and declining as we descend the scale of civilisation, until, arriving at the lowest degree of intelligence displayed by the human race, it is entirely wanting. The ores of iron are extensively disseminated throughout the globe, but their conversion in large quantities into metallic iron is limited to a few of the more advanced European nations and the Anglo-Saxon population of America. The presence of apparently inexhaustible supplies of ores, obtained with the greatest facility, and yielding irons of the finest description, immediately contiguous to vast deposits of mineral fuel peculiarly adapted for their reduction, has resulted in an extraordinary development of this manufacture in Great Britain. At the present day, the annual production of three of the principal districts of the United Kingdom, viz. South Wales, South Staffordshire, and Scotland, considerably exceeds the collective production of all other nations. The importance of this branch of metallurgical industry to the commercial prosperity of the kingdom may be inferred from the circumstance, that, while the home consumption in foundries and manufactories absorbs one-half of the production, the quantity exported is scarcely inferior to the gross produce of all other nations, a fact which shows a high state of mechanical science and the attainment of a degree of perfection far beyond that common in other countries.
