In this fifth edition of Witthaus' chemistry a number of changes have been made. The section of chemical physics has been somewhat extended to include brief considerations of some questions of physics which have largely entered into the chemistry of the present day. The section on inorganic chemistry has been condensed, while that on organic chemistry has been re-arranged, largely rewritten and extended. The number of references to the subject of physiologic chemistry, which were included in the former editions, have been omitted, and the subject has been treated, as regards its more important branches, in a section by itself. The laboratory teachings, which formed a special section in the former editions, is omitted here as being better taught from special laboratory manuals. The book is thus an improvement on preceding editions and will retain the favor it has received in the past as a well designed medical student's manual
