THE rapid advances which have been made in recent years in our knowledge of crystals, and the increasing number of points at which crystallography comes into contact both with chemistry and physics, render it more than ever desirable that students of these sciences should acquire a sound knowledge of the nature and properties of crystals and an acquaintance with the methods of crystallo-graphic research. In illustration of this it is only necessary to refer on one hand to the work of Pope and Barlow on the relation between valency and crystalline structure, and on the other to that of Lehmann, Vorländer, and others on the remarkable group of bodies forming the so-called “liquid crystals.”
