(1) Elementary Inorganic Chemistry (2) Intermediate Inorganic Chemistry

    Abstract

    DR. MELLOR has divided his well-known “Introduction to Modern Inorganic Chemistry” into two separate volumes in order to meet more adequately the needs of schools. The more elementary volume is written about the properties of air, water, and the common non-metals, with a simple discussion of some of the fundamental principles of chemistry, together with biographical notes of some of the founders of the science. Most of the text has been incorporated into the “Intermediate Inorganic Chemistry”, which includes also some chapters on organic compounds and on the common metals. Both volumes are admirably illustrated and the subject matter is presented in an attractive fashion. The “Intermediate” volume contains questions at the end of each chapter, and here and there one comes unexpectedly across delightful quotations from such works as “Alice in Wonderland” and Shelley's poems. It also contains a fair amount of physical chemistry.
