Modern Science Reader, with Special Reference to Chemistry

Nature volume 88, page 444 (01 February 1912) | Download Citation



IN this country “Readers' are usually intended for young children. In the States the use of “Readers “extends to a later period of study, and in the present instance the book provides a course for “college men” and general readers. It is a compilation of reprints of modern papers and professional addresses, and is-the first volume of a series which, it is hoped, will broaden the outlook of the undergraduates for whom it is intended. In every instance, the authors and publishers of the original papers have consented to their republication in this handy form. The selection of subjects has been made with a judicious regard for the taste of the reading public, and as the authors include Crookes, Lodge, Remsen, and Madame Curie, the readers are provided with stimulating fare.
