A Manual of Chemistry, Theoretical and Practical (based on Watts' edition of Fownes' Manual)

Abstract

THE preface to the original edition of Fownes' Manual is dated October 5, 1847. The merits of that book, published about half a century ago, were known to all. But, inasmuch as Prof. Tilden says in his preface to the present work “the last traces of Fownes have disappeared in the process” of re-writing, it is a manual of chemistry by Dr. Tilden, and not Fownes' book, that is to be reviewed here.

A Manual of Chemistry, Theoretical and Practical (based on Watts' edition of Fownes' Manual).

By William A. Tilden Pp. xvi + 599. (London: J. and A. Churchill, 1897.)
