THE book is essentially a collection of tables of the numerical values obtained in the analysis of oils and fats, and of tables useful in industries where oils and fats are employed; it forms a companion to the author's earlier publication on the “Chemical Analysis of Oils, Fats and Waxes.” The amount of information in the book is very extensive, as may be judged from the fact that the number of oils only, for which constants are given is 111, and the number of fats 65.
