We had the pleasure of reviewing the fifth edition of this work in 1896, and during the three years that have elapsed many important results of scientific progress have been recorded in this volume.

The peculiar feature of the book is the plates giving the actual color and color-changes of most of the important tests in science and physiology as a permanent set and standard of comparison for the determination of important questions depending upon the test-tube.

The author has not yet adopted fully the orthography recommended by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, but the decimal system has been strictly adhered to in all weights and measures, and degrees of temperature expressed in the same system, though the corresponding degrees of the Fahrenheit scale have been mentioned.

This edition is destined to retain the favorable opinion expressed of previous ones; and it well merits its deserved popularity.
