This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1893 edition. Excerpt: ...Course 1 should be preceded by Course B, but is open to Freshmen who have passed in the Elective Chemistry for admission or who satisfy the Instructor that they are fitted to pursue the course. This extended course of lectures on Descriptive Chemistry furnishes not only an essential prerequisite to the further study of the science, but also offers an important means of liberal culture. It supplements Courses A and B. The former deal chiefly with fundamental principles of Chemistry, and only a few of the more elementary facts are studied as illustrations of these principles. Chemistry 1, on the other hand, offers a systematic presentation of the accumulating facts of the science, and covers the whole ground of what is distinguished as inorganic chemistry. The accumulation is so great that only the most important facts can be studied in one of our college courses. Nevertheless, all the chemical elements, except the rarer and less authenticated, are passed in review and their relations discussed; and in connection with each element such compounds are described as have important applications in the arts of life. In a word, the course is intended to furnish that knowledge which is essential to the chemist and important to every man who is connected, however remotely, with chemical industries. To derive the greatest advantage from the course, the student should follow up faithfully a course of reading parallel to the lectures. The last edition of the Treatise on Chemistry by Roscoe and Schorlemmer (the organic part in three large 8vo volumes) is the fullest and best exposition of the subject in the English language; but the shorter work of Thorpe (two 12mo volumes) is also a trustworthy guide, although not so full or so valuable for reference. more
