This is a complete manual of chemistry for medical students in a small, compact and convenient volume. The book covers the usual ground gone over in medical colleges and in addition material intended for such students as may expect to take examinations requiring knowledge regarding the testing of compounds. This is especially noticeable in Part II, in which the technic for gas analysis is given, which is required in some examinations in England, but which in this country is entirely unnecessary. The work also goes further in physical chemistry than usual. The book may be considered very complete as a regular text for college students but appears to go into details which are unpractical for medical students.
