Practical Exercises in Chemistry


    MR. DONINGTON'S little book derives special interest from the fact that whilst he is a pupil, and a very grateful one, of Prof. Armstrong, he has found himself compelled by experience as a science master in a school (and one in which no specially unfavourable conditions prevail) to depart from the practice of leaving the pupils without a text-book during their practical lessons. This experience is, we believe, by no means uncommon, and it is an advantage that the “felt want” should be supplied by one who naturally strives to conserve as much as he can of the merits of the no text-book system. In this object the author has, we think, had good success, and his book is likely to take high rank among those which of late years have been written to set forth an elementary course of chemistry for those secondary schools where there is a desire to teach scientific method through th medium of this science.
