While, as stated in the preface of this revision, "most of the added matter is given in a chapter, not in the older editions, on the theories of solution and the conditions of chemical equilibrium," yet the entire matter has been conscientiously revised by the author and brought up to date. Professor Long's large experience as a teacher of chemistry has enabled him to present the modern theories of solution, mass, action, etc., in a simple, direct manner, free from technicalities, which will appeal to students in medical schools. Throughout the book the author's effort is apparent to present to the student the fundamental facts of chemistry in a simple yet exact manner, and in this he is eminently successful. In our opinion, it is to be regretted that more attention is not given to chemical phenomena of direct interest to physicians; thus, although eight pages are devoted to the
