A Concise History of Chemistry
by

Publisher: D. Van Nostrand
ISBN/ASIN: B007MHV4TA
Number of pages: 292

Description:
This book is an attempt to outline as briefly and succinctly as possible the historical development of chemistry. It is presumed that the reader is simultaneously acquiring, or already possesses, a fair knowledge of present-day chemical theory and practice, and, accordingly, no space is devoted to the actual explanation of hypotheses or reactions except in so far as the latter are directly bound up with the historical sequence of facts.
