George Barger (The Simpler Natural Bases, New York, Longmans, Green & Co., 1914) first recognized the desirability of assembling in systematic form the data on various chemical groups which are related in biologic importance and methodology. Guggenheim (who dedicates his work to Barger) has devoted his efforts to bring together such data for the naturally occurring amines and related synthetic substances. The point of view throughout is that of the organic chemist who appreciates the pharmacologic and biologic importance of his chemicals. A short section on the general properties and methods of study of these amines is followed by concise but rather exhaustive discussions of the amines arranged in sections according to their chemical classification: alkyl
