THIS is a pleasing book profusely illustrated by photographs and line drawings, the latter being unusually clear and instructive. The atomic and molecular theories are given careful attention and the authors have succeeded in making clear a section which most pupils often find rather difficult. The metals are treated in a somewhat original manner, the authors using a classification based on the electrochemical series instead of the usual periodic classification. The salts are grouped according to acid radicals instead of metals, the sulphates, for example, being described in the chapter on sulphuric acid.
