An Introduction to Modern Scientific Chemistry was digitized and reprinted from the collections of the University of California Libraries. It was produced from digital images created through the libraries’ mass digitization efforts. The digital images were cleaned and prepared for printing through automated processes. Despite the cleaning process, occasional flaws may still be present that were part of the original work itself, or introduced during digitization.
From the Author:
In this Introduction to Modern Scientific Chemistry an attempt is made to give a succinct and accurate presentation of chemistry on strictly scientific lines, and at the same time in as popular a form as is compatible with the matter and the vast range of the subject. The book can be followed easily by anyone who takes a serious interest in natural science, and will not, I hope, be unwelcome to the younger chemists who are still pursuing their studies.
A teacher of chemistry who may not have paid special attention to the methods of presenting his subject will perhaps find in the book something useful to him- self and helpful to his hearers.
The form followed in lectures is used as far as possible ; for, by pursuing the subject in this way, the reader seems to find for himself the results that chemistry has gained ; and experience has shown that this form is the most interesting and the most easily understood.
