True to its title, this volume discusses inorganic pharmaceutic chemistry. It is based on the U. S. Pharmacopeia and the National Formulary except for arrangement. In addition, the methods of commercial manufacture are described. It is nicely printed and bound. As a reference book it is excellent. As a textbook it may be differently considered. The book is a compendium of information that is easily obtained from the Pharmacopeia, the National Formulary and other books. It is more worth while to teach generalities, laws and reasons for facts than to teach masses of information as easily found and understood as is much of the information found in this book.
