WITH the numerous works on chemical analysis already in existence we are justified in asking what special advantages Prof. Dittmar has to offer to chemical students in bringing out another book on the same subject. It will be found, in answer to this question, that the present work contrasts favourably with many of our standard books on the subject both as regards completeness, originality of treatment, and the introduction of a large amount of important matter which has not hitherto found its way into our manuals of analysis.

A Manual of Qualitative Chemical Analysis.

By William Dittmar, Professor of Chemistry in Anderson's University, Glasgow. (Edinburgh: Edmonston and Douglas, 1876.)
