Abstract

PROF. J. F. NORRIS is well known to organic chemists as an original investigator and a teacher of wide experience. His mode of introduction to the fundamental principles of the science is unusual, but deserving of consideration by other teachers of the subject. Probably many teachers would prefer an arrangement different from that adopted, and, indeed, Prof. Norris's arrangement involves at times a considerable amount of reference to different parts of the book in connexion with the treatment of particular classes of compounds or individual substances. Few other authors of such a textbook have indicated more clearly the wide ambit of organic chemistry and its bearing on our knowledge of biological processes; and although the book may be regarded as somewhat encyclopædic for beginners, the perspective between different branches is well maintained.
