“It is safe to say that no text-book has exerted so wide an influence on the study of chemistry in this country as this work, originally written by Eliot and Storer.  Its distinguished authors were leaders in teaching Chemistry as a means of mental training in general education, and in organizing and perfecting a system of instructing students in large classes by the experimental method.  As revised and improved by Professor Nichols, it continued to give the highest satisfaction in our best schools and colleges.  After the death of Professor Nichols, when it became necessary to revise the work again, Professor Lindsay, of Dickinson College, was selected to assist Dr. Storer in the work.  The present edition has been entirely rewritten by them, following throughout the same plan and arrangement of the previous editions, which have been so highly approved by a generation of scholars and teachers.
“If a book, like an individual, has a history, certainly the record of this one, covering a period of nearly thirty years, is of the highest and most honorable character.”—­From The American Journal of Science.
