Excerpt from The Industrial Interests of Newark, N. J: Containing an Historical Sketch of the City; Also a Complete Summary of the Origin, Growth and Present Condition of Newark's Industries; Including the Location and Description of All the Manufacturing Establishments

In the preparation of the following pages the design has been to give a succinct account of the history and characteristics of each industry, together with careful statistical summaries of each branch of manufactures. No attempt has been made to give the amount of capital invested, it being a matter of little importance to the world at large who have only to deal with results, and not the means of reaching them. The statistical information given has been acquired through personal interviews with each manufacturer, and in nearly every instance the figures have been verified by reference to the books of the firm; their accuracy, therefore, is beyond question.

It needs no specious argument to show that the following work is an innovation in the industrial literature of the country. No similar attempt has previously been made in the interest of any manufacturing city. That the effect of such a work is in general beneficial to the interests of a city, and hence, of great value to each individual manufacturer is obvious. That his material welfare and that of the city in which his wares are produced are identical is manifestly plain. Next to spreading accurate information concerning the various products of his factory, a manufacturer should avail himself of every opportunity to contribute to the popularity of his city abroad as one of the world's greatest workshops.

Should this volume add to the renown which Newark has already achieved as a centre of industry and mechanical skill, the purpose of the publishers will have been accomplished.

The labor requisite for compiling and preparing for publication the succeeding pages can scarcely be overestimated. The great magnitude of the task has, however, been materially lessened through the valuable suggestions received from Col. Robert S. Swords, the obliging Secretary of the Newark Board of Trade, and the courtesy of Mr. William E. Layton of the Newark Library. Our thanks are also due for the cordial support and encouragement of the enterprising press of Newark.
