The duration of the Ceylon Rubber Exhibition allowed it to become a Rubber Congress in which lectures were given upon various branches of the subject from cultivation to vulcanisation. The lectures, discussions, judges' reports, and other details of the exhibition collected in this work have been arranged in a logical order resulting in a standard treatise on the rubber industry in the British Empire at the dawn of the twentieth century..
