Alchemy and Chemistry


THIS is a very interesting book; its object is stated in a sentence printed on a fly-leaf following the title-page—“This essay is written in the hope that some of the men who exercise their ‘wit and reason’ in examining the problems of life may help to answer the questions that nature propounds to those of her students who follow the quest of the unchanging.”

The Alchemical Essence and the Chemical Element, an Episode in the Quest of the Unchanging.

By M. M. Pattison Muir. Pp. 94. (London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1894.)
