Abstract:

The present survey of the erosion of guns aims to collate the principal factual data on the subject and, in addition, to summarize the different theories that have been proposed to explain or to correlate these facts. Special care has been exercised to separate the facts from the various interpretations that may be placed upon them, since the latter in many instances depend on unverified assumptions. The sources of all information have been indicated in order that the reader may consult them for further details for, although this survey attempts to be comprehensive, the treatment of the various items mentioned is not intended to be exhaustive.
