EMIL FISCHER'S “Anleitung zur Darstellung organischer Präparate” first appeared in 1883 in the form of autograph copies for the use of his students in the Erlangen Laboratory, and represents the first published introduction to the practical study of organic chemistry. The increasing demand led to its appearance in book form in 1887, and from it an English translation was made by A. Kling, which reached a second edition in 1895.
