The translation into German of Professor Noyes' text-book on organic chemistry is further evidence that the work done in the United States in chemistry—even in organic chemistry, the special field of the Germans—and especially the methods of teaching chemistry, is being recognized abroad. Within recent years a number of text-books on chemistry, written by American authors, have been deemed worthy of translation into other languages; thus, the text-books of Prof. Ira Remsen, of Johns Hopkins University, and of Alexander Smith, of the University of Chicago, have been translated into German. To this now is added the text-book on organic chemistry by Prof. William A. Noyes, who is professor of chemistry at the University of Illinois and editor of the Journal of the American Chemical Society. In the introduction to this translation the justification for the translation of this work into the German language, which has a superabundance of similar text-books,
