Excerpt from Foods: Their Composition and Analysis; A Manual for the Use of Analytical Chemists and Others; With an Introductory Essay on the History of Adulteration Numerous Tables, some of which are indispensable and others convenient, have also been added and new Illustrations, from original drawings, introduced. The Article on [ville - a special feature of the First Edition is still further enlarged, and contains the Author's most recent researches on the subject. It may, perhaps, be considered a fairly complete Monograph. In the Article on Water (added by request) the application of an improved process for combustion in a vacuum is detailed, and the importance of Biological methods Of examination is insisted upon - not as supplementary to Chemical tests, but as of equal (if not of superior) value to these. Though the scope of the Manual is mainly that of a Labora tory Handbook, yet the dietetic and medical aspects of the more important Foods are, where necessary, fully considered, and the Author believes that a great proportion of the work is thus of that general interest which will render it useful to those who, without much chemical knowledge, yet desire to have, in a form admitting of easy reference, the latest information relative to Foods and Beverages. In conclusion, he can only express a hope that the work, in its new shape, will be found widely useful, and more worthy of the very kind reception accorded to the First Edition.
