Not illustrated. 1894 edition. Excerpt: ...into juxtaposition material hitherto scattered and difficult of access. Taken all in all, Professor Palaz's treatise is a great advance upon those which have preceded it. It is much more complete than the works of Dibden and of Kruess, and it is written in a broader and more scientific spirit. It will be found a convenient and fairly accurate work of reference for those who have to do with practical photometry, and beyond that will give the reader a glimpse into the field of investigation which this branch of optics presents. E. L. Nichols. A Guide to Stereochemistry. Arnold Eil0art. 96 pp. Price 1.00. New York, Alexander Wilson, 1893. The theory of geometrical isomerism, more briefly termed Stereochemistry, strives to account for the fact that some organic compounds of identical composition and strikingly similar chemical properties yet differ slightly in certain properties, by ascribing to the molecules of these substances different arrangement in space of their constituent atom groups. There has been of late much speculation regarding the stereochemistry of carbon and nitrogen compounds, and it is summarized in the book by Dr. Eiloart, which is designed to serve as a text-book. The author devotes very little attention to the established features of the theory, but discusses the more recent speculations in considerable detail. For this reason the classical little Stereochimie of van't Hoff (new edition, 1892) is likely to be of more service in giving a clear idea of results actually reached. The latter half of Dr. Eiloart's book is an alphabetical list of literature citations, and to it is appended an illustrated description of wooden models (tetrahedral) designed to represent the "structural formulae " of organic compounds. more
