In this post we will see a book titled On Rare and Scattered Metals by S. Venetsky, which is a sort of sequel to the book titled Tales About Metals.

This
book tells about some rare metals (including those called trace
elements) and can be regarded as a second part of S. I. Venetsky’s Tales
About Metals (It was published in English by Mir Publishers, Moscow, in
1981).
The author follows the same principle as in his previous
work: rather than giving the reader any exhaustive information about
every chemical element he describes, to tell him some interesting facts,
curious incidents and tales associated with rare metals, to tell about
the thorny path of any major scientific discovery and about some paths
yet to be trodden in the amazing world of metals.

This book was translated from the Russian by by N. G. Kittell, and was first published by Mir in 1983.
