THE appearance of pamphlets such as the one under review1 indicates, if any indication were needed, the necessity for students of chemistry, and particularly of organic chemistry, of possessing a Working knowledge of German. The Germans write these short monographs so well, and the German publishers seem to like publishing them, although the profit must be small. In Great Britain there is a need for similar publications, but their sale is restricted by the fact that senior students (third year) rely nowadays almost entirely on their lecture notes.
