What was written about the first edition of this book applies with almost equal force to this edition. It is true that some of the glaring errors pointed out in our previous review have been corrected, and an attempt, at least, has been made to have the book conform more to the modern theories as applied to chemical analysis. There is, however, nothing new or unique either in the subject-matter or in the arrangement. There are in existence many textbooks dealing with this subject, and why there should be added this one we fail to see, unless it be as we said before simply to attach one's name to a collection of well known facts presented under the camouflage of a nice appearing book.
