Originally published during the early part of the twentieth century, the Cambridge Manuals of Science and Literature were designed to provide concise introductions to a broad range of topics. They were written by experts for the general reader and combined a comprehensive approach to knowledge with an emphasis on accessibility. H. R. Procter's The Making of Leather, first published in 1914, presents a sketch of the methods, the chemistry and the scientific basis of leather-making.
