William L. Marcy, was the examination, scientific description and chemical analysis of its mineral products, or what was understood to be included under the term Mineralogy in its broadest acceptation. This commission was continued by Governor Seward- and the work now presented to the public, is the final result of my investigations.Desirous of following out to the fullest extent the views which were entertained in regard to the department entrusted to me, the plan which I pursued was, to visit the more interesting mineral districts, for the purpose of obtaining illustrative specimens- to determine with as much accuracy as was necessary, the chemical composition of the most useful and interesting minerals and mineral waters- and finally to present detailed descriptions of all the minerals hitherto found in the State, with notices of their localities and uses.The results of my labours, in regard to the analysis of useful minerals and mineral waters, will be found in the first part of this work, entitled Economical Mineralogy.

In this, my object has been to give an extended and popular account of these products, with such remarks, either directly or indirectly connected with the subject treated of, as I thought would be useful to those who are engaged in the various manufactures dependent on them.The ores of iron, lead and manganese, gypsum, the water limestones, and the mineral springs, have especially engaged my attention, and full details concerning them will be found int following pages.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
