Amsterdam: North-Holland/Elsevier, 1997. First Edition. Large Octavo. Item #027209
583pp. Two of the great scholars at the end of the 20th Century cover topics on mostly metallic rare earth materials. Whether it is the formation of amorphus, microcrystalline and quasicrystalline phases by mechanical alloying or the 4f elements, they have been on the cutting edge of the discipline. Printed in a very small print run, copies are rare outside the top research libraries. Bound in silver cloth lettered and decorated in black and orange. A very nice copy, near fine.
