The seventh edition of this familiar text-book is now presented to the public. A thorough revision of the work has been made. In order that it might fully represent the latest advances in chemistry, much of the matter has been re-written. In each department there is a vast amount both of theoretical and practical instruction. This is especially true of the chapter which treats of the metals.
The latest views with reference to organic chemistry have required that this part of the work should be materially revised, and the chapter upon the chemistry of vegetation is entirely re-written. The "new remedies" find their appropriate places in the text, and add value to the work. Much of valuable instruction is contained in the closing portion of the work, which treats of " the useful application of the principles of organic chemistry."
It is a substantial, finely printed and illustrated work, suited alike
