THIS book is a continuation of the subject of odour-yielding products treated of by Mr. Sawer in a volume bearing the same title and issued in 1892. Though the present book is a companion volume in every respect to its predecessor, and might well have been designated as the second volume, the author has preferred to call it the second series, thus implying, and indeed distinguishing, the former book as the first series—a little peculiarity which does not in itself affect the value of the work, but which tends to confusion lest the second series might be taken for an extended or enlarged edition of the first; whereas the term volume would have implied that it is an entirely new book, which is really what the author wishes his readers to understand, as he tells us in the preface to the new volume that the matter treated therein is a “continuation of the subjects already discussed.”

    Odorographia: a Natural History of Raw Materials and Drugs used in the Perfume Industry, including the Aromatics used in flavouring. Intended for the use of Growers, Manufacturers, and Consumers.

    By J. Ch. Sawer Second Series. (London: Gurney and Jackson, 1894.)
