Poisons : their Isolation and Identification

Nature volume 162, page 8 (03 July 1948) | Download Citation



THIS is a book which within a relatively small compass gives a vast amount of information. The distinguishing feature of this information is its usefulness. In too many books describing processes of scientific investigation, one finds that some vital detail of technique is not mentioned, and further research is required before the technique can be successfully used. This is not true of ‘Bamford'. The details given are adequate for the working out of the processes described and they bear the marks of the author having used them.
