(1) ALTHOUGH ‘spot’ methods of analysis are beginning to find their way into textbooks, yet Prof. Feigl's treatise is still the standard work on the subject, and by far the most complete exposition of it. Consequently, it is a matter for congratulation that the practical section of the latest (1935) edition (reviewed in NATTJEE, 136, 89; 1935), has been translated into English. The theoretical portion is to be published separately in the future. This English edition is, in some measure, an advance on the original, for it has been brought up to date both by revision and by the inclusion of the most recent work of the author and his collaborators. The majority of these new tests relate to the detection of organic compounds or groups, so that this section now covers a wide field.
