    Abstract

    (1) MR. HARVEY'S handbook is intended for the use of the works chemist in charge of the analytical and testing department of a tannery. It is an eminently practical work, well and clearly written with due regard to modern methods, and evidently based upon considerable personal experience. It presupposes that, the user of the book has had not only a preliminary course of instruction in theoretical chemistry, but also the opportunity of a laboratory training in manipulation in qualitative and quantitative analysis. In these circumstances the book can be thoroughly recommended as an excellent vade mecum to the work of the chemical laboratory of a tannery, or to the student who intends ultimately to specialise on leather chemistry. It will be found to cover practically every problem that the works chemist of a tannery may have to face. The analytical methods described have been thoroughly tested, and are well adapted to practical conditions.
