Aboriginal Indian pottery of the Dominican republic by Herbert W Krieger( Book )

3 editions published between 1931 and 1964 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The material culture of the Arawak Indians of Santo Domingo is South American in origin, and in a general way, in content. Pottery was brought to the islands and there developed into artistic forms not known in the pristine home of the island of Arawak. The use of slips and paints, like the shaping of divergent forms, was taking its beginning in southeastern Santo Domingo at the time of the discovery and conquest by Columbian forces

The metallography of meteoric iron by Stuart Hoffman Perry( Book )

2 editions published in 1944 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A systematic treatment of the metallography of meteoric iron was prompted by the author's experience in describing an iron meteorite by metallographic methods somewhat more than a decade ago. After that, a search of the literature proved scanty for any new meteorite being described in a similar manner. The present work aims to apply metallography, both theoretically and practically, to the study of iron meteorites. To that end the author has attempted to give a sufficient outline to the metallography of artificial iron and its alloys to enable the reader to interpret meteoritic structures; the principal types and structural features are described and illustrated; methods of research are explained; and finally a somewhat comprehensive bibliography is presented
