Abstract

THE reviewer of our “Systematic Organic Chemistry” in NATURE of March 15 admits at the outset that the book is conceived on novel lines, and that the design is excellent, but in proceeding, he makes no attempt to bring either this design or the new text-book matter of the treatise to the notice of his readers; instead, he makes two orthographical corrections, calculates a joke through our omission of a decimal point (see yield of benzaldehyde), and includes other statements to complete what we think a very unfair review.
