A Compendium of Chemistry (including General, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry)

Nature volume 70, pages 269270 (21 July 1904) | Download Citation



THIS kind of book is perhaps more common and more popular, therefore, in Germany than in this country. It is neither a text-book nor a book of reference, but something between the two. Its aim seems to be rather to refresh the memory, if the word refresh can be used in this connection, than to train the mind. It is, in fact, a multum in parvo of information, which a student who had worried out his principles and theories beforehand, and merely required to marshal his facts and ideas, might use with advantage.
