IT was suggested in the review of Mr. A. Marshall's L important work on “ Explosives” in NATURE of June 3, 1915 (vol. xcv., p. 366) that the book would be improved if it had an introductory chapter dealing with the general principles on which the composition and action of explosives depend. Mr. Marshall, writing from Naini Tal, India, says that he had prepared a chapter on the lines suggested for another shorter work of a less technical character than that which was the subject of our review. Unfortunately, through pressure of other work, he has been obliged to postpone for the present the completion of this book, but he sends us the chapter; and we are glad to publish it as a separate article, as the subject is of particular interest at the present time.
