This textbook has enjoyed such general acceptance as an authority in its field for so many years that it is difficult for a reviewer to do more than call attention to a new edition.
As the editors point out, the present edition has been extensively revised and rewritten, in addition to which a considerable amount of new material has been added to encompass the newer methods for existing determinations where these represent an advantage in facility of performance and accuracy as well as a wealth of entirely new technics.
