This volume, a companion to volume I, deals with inorganic subjects, whereas volume I dealt with organic topics. The editor has followed the plan of the first, experts collaborating on the various subjects. There has been correlated considerable valuable information with regard to the recent advances in analytic methods, also indicating the original source from which more detailed instruction may be obtained. In general, this is only partially successful because of the rapidity with which new analytic procedures are forthcoming; in many instances, some are only slight modifications of old well known methods. Conspicuous by its absence is any mention of the use of the various uranyl acetate methods for the determination of sodium. Nevertheless, the book will be a valuable and reliable addition to a collection of books on analytic chemistry.
