The Book of Receipts

    THE scope of this book is sufficiently indicated by its extended title. It is intended mainly for the use of pharmacists, but the photographic formulary and the sets of recipes for microscopical reagents and stains, waxes, varnishes, and special inks, etc., may be useful in scientific laboratories. The authors should consider the desirability of issuing these sections with additions as a separate laboratory receipt book. The collection is at present rather too eclectic to appeal to the average scientific worker.
