The first comprehensive work on metallurgy, The Pirotechnia was published in 1540.

Lavishly illustrated, it describes the equipment and processes of sixteenth-century mining, smelting, and metalworking.

For centuries, this famous work has been a standard reference; it is especially valuable as a source of information on the state of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century technology.
