First Page:

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTES: Minor typographical and lay out errors have been corrected. Inconsistencies in spelling (e.g. hyphenated vs. non hyphenated words) have not been corrected. Italics are represented by underscores as in text . The original book uses a V symbol to describe V shaped cuts. These V symbols are represented as [V]. Changes made to original text: Table of Contents: "Early collection of latex transport" changed to "Early collection of latex Transport". "Roof brick built houses" changed to "Roof Brick built houses". The order of the sections under Chapters XII and XXII has been changed slightly to reflect the order of the sections in the text. "Tephrosia candiad" changed to "Tephrosia candida". "Archiev" changed to "Archief". "about 1/2 square" changed to "about 1/2 inch square". "asbesto slate" changed to "asbestos slate" as elsewhere. "Formaline" changed to "Formalin" as elsewhere. Footnotes moved to under the paragraph they belong to. Page 141: "The lengths of crepe were weighed carefully at 8 a.m. and 4 a.m." should probably read "The lengths of crepe were weighed carefully at 8 a.m. and 4 p.m."

PREFACE

Mr. Sidney Morgan's work on Plantation Rubber in the East is so well known that he hardly needs introduction.

An earlier book, published in 1914, by the Rubber Growers' Association, entitled "The Preparation of Plantation Rubber," was well received and widely read. This book dealt in a very practical manner with problems with which the industry had to contend. A second edition was subsequently published. Both editions are now out of print. The present opportunity was therefore taken to revise the original work, with the result that it has been enlarged and practically rewritten. The information given is brought up to date, and covers the whole process of production, commencing with the planting of the tree, passing on to the collection, coagulation, and curing of the rubber, and concluding with the packing for export. In the course of his work for the Association, Mr. Morgan carried out a great deal of industrial research in rubber production, including lengthy experiments on tapping, the use of different coagulants and different conditions of coagulation, and also on varying modes of rolling, drying, and smoking rubber...
