    ORIGINATING in 1913, this book has now reached its sixth edition—no better testimonial can be desired. The revision has been undertaken by Messrs. Guthrie and Nance, both lecturers in the University of Liverpool. Needless to say, the book has been brought up-to-date, for there is progress in this as in other branches of chemistry. Very properly ‘ml.’ has been substituted for ‘c.c.’ The changes which are indicated in the preface include recent methods for calibrating volumetric apparatus and determining hydrion concentration. The enhanced use of electrolytic methods is given due attention and the same applies to colorimetric methods, for which a number of new reagents have been described. In addition to what may be described as general analysis, the book has chapters relating to the analysis of ores and alloys, of gas and water.
