The first version of this book, Packaging materials and containers was published in 1967 and was revised extensively ten years later under the title The Packaging media. The present work incorporates developments in materials (increasing use of plastics and plastics in combination with other materials); packaging machinery; methods of distribution, warehousing, and stocking; and management methods and control. The technical aspects of all types of materials are addressed in detail. Only a nod acknowledges the issues of recycling, and the various impacts that increasing environmental concerns will have on the use of packaging are not addressed.

Tinplate containers for many products are down to thicknesses weighing between one-half and two-thirds of their weight before World War II.
