This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

The use of small packages has helped to do away with adulteration by dishonest retail dealers; the purchaser knows that he is getting the original package, just as it was received from the importer.
