METALLURGICAL COATINGS 1984. PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON METALLURGICAL COATINGS, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, U.S.A., APRIL 9-13, 1984. Organizers: The American vacuum Society, INC. Edited by R.C. Krutenat & J.N. Zemel. Volumes I & II. Lausanne: Elsevier Sequoia S.A., 1984. First Edition. Rare.

A rare First Edition set of two solid books with many highly specialized scholarly articles. These books are complete and unrestored; they were at one time in the library of the US Department of Energy, which was closed down a few years ago. Published more than 30 years ago, this set of books is now very rare and can sell for more than $500.

From the Preface of Volume I:"The Eleventh International Conference on Metallurgical Coatings (ICMC) was held in San Diego, CA, April 9-13, 1984. Approximately 200 papers were presented by authors representing 19 countries. The attendance at 536 exceeded those of all prior years. The conference was again sponsored by the Vacuum Metallugry Division (VMD) of the American Vacuum Society and co-sponsored by The American Society for Metals, The International Union for Vacuum Scinces, Techniques and Applications and the Indian Vacuum Society. We express our thanks to these organizations for their assistance in developing an excellent program for 1984."

According to Wikipedia: "Metallurgy is a domain of materials science and engineering that studies the physical and chemical behavior of metallic elements, their inter-metallic compounds, and their mixtures, which are called alloys. Metallurgy is also the technology of metals: the way in which science is applied to the production of metals, and the engineering of metal components for usage in products for consumers and manufacturers. The production of metals involves the processing of ores to extract the metal they contain, and the mixture of metals, sometimes with other elements, to produce alloys. Metallurgy is distinguished from the craft of metalworking, although metalworking relies on metallurgy, as medicine relies on medical science, for technical advancement. Metallurgy is subdivided into ferrous metallurgy (also known as black metallurgy) and non-ferrous metallurgy (also known as colored metallurgy). Ferrous metallurgy involves processes and alloys based on iron while non-ferrous metallurgy involves processes and alloys based on other metals. The production of ferrous metals accounts for 95 percent of world metal production.[1]"
