5 British Uralite Co “Abestone” (Asbestos cement sheets and roofing tiles) advertising Flyer
London British Uralite Co. (1908) Ltd 1932 First Edition Pamphlet Good 11.5 x 20.5cm Approx 
One sheet, six sided advertising flyer for this dangerous (now illegal) substance. Card/paper as published. Condition Good, minor folding top/base and small brown stain that affects each side. Undated but this name was only used between 1908 & 1932. This details the various products with sizes & weights. From the net found out that Asbestos was used for a range building products, of which asbestos cement was one of the last, but become the most widely used until the link to cancer was proven. From the time of Charlemagne the material had been woven into a fireproof cloth, made from amianthus, and by the 19th even roofing. With new mines opening from 1877 there was more commercial exploitation of the mineral. From a quick net check I could not find another copy.
