(1) Dr. Price's monograph on the per-acids and their salts is the second volume of a series of monographs on inorganic and physical chemistry, the previous volume (Mr. Soddy's book on the chemistry of the radio-elements) having been reviewed recently in these columns. One half of the book is occupied with an account of the per sulphuric acids and per-sulphates, the remainder of the volume dealing with perborates, percarbonates, pernitric and perphosphoric acids; pertitanates, perzirconates and perstannates; pervanadates, percolumbates, and pertantalates; perchromates; permolybdates, pertungstates and peruranates. The new volume will go far to establish the reputation of the series for thoroughness and utility. More than three hundred references are given to the literature of a subject which would scarcely have been credited by the ordinary readers with having provided material for one-half this number of papers.
