This book is a history of the Lynn and Braintree ventures of the Company of Undertakers of the Ironworks in New England and of making of iron in America through the seventeenth century. A large modern industry, organized in American Iron and Steel Institute, sought to commemorate its founders by setting up a faithful replica of Hammersmith, the mid-seventeenth century plant in which successful, sustained and integrated production of cast and wrought iron was first achieved with the limits of the United States. Softcover; 328 pages.
