The main object of this book, as stated in the preface, is to present in one volume an adequate number of methods of microscopic technic of general interest to the technical chemist. With this in mind, the author has attempted to make a judicious arrangement of the subject. Chapters I to VIII and XI contain sections on microscopic technic and accessories, measurement, counting and drawing, photomicrography, micro-chemical technic, inorganic and organic micro-analysis, and textile and paper-making fibers. The subject matter is presented in a clear and concise manner such as might be expected in a brief introductory book. It is disappointing, however, to note that only a page is devoted to metallography, which is included under accessories as surfacing metals for examination. The remaining chapters, occupying more than half of the volume, deal with botany, microbiology and insects, which will probably be found to be of more or less value
