The author's stated goal is to "at the earnest solicitation of many foundrymen" to provide based on practical observation and many years in the business "some regularity in the melting of iron for foundry purposes," by "throwing some light upon the subject of melting iron, and the construction and management of cupolas and furnances - a subject that always seems to be enshrouded in mystery."
