Nature volume 29, page 451 | Download Citation



THIS elaborate volume forms a part of the second edition of the author's treatise on “Practical Chemistry,” which has been wisely split up into two volumes, one on “Foods,” the other on “Poisons.” Mr. Blyth's experience as a health-officer and public analyst guarantees that his conclusions are largely based on actual practice as a toxicologist; and the book will be found to abound in records of his own experiences.
