n experience of ten years in teaching both medical and general chemistry, privately and in classes, during which time I have instructed at least one thousand students, has convinced me that the science is very difficult to acquire, and taxes, as much as mathematical study, the powers of abstract reasoning. I have not sought to make this book a manual of experiment, or practice. Such works are abundant. For medical students, the treatise of Attfield is all-sufficient; for general instruction, that of Eliot and Storer, by far the most philosophical “chemistry” in our language, or the larger work of Bloxam will fulfil ordinary requirements; while, for research and extended reading, the chemist must consult the writings of specialists, or the ponderous volumes that are, by a sort of irony, called “hand books.”
