PREFACE TO THIRD EDITION.
In preparing a third edition of the Compend of Chemistry, I have endeavored simply to bring the book up to date, as far as concerns the general applications of Chemistry to Medicine and Dentistry. More space has been given to explanations of the nature and functions of acids and radicles, and the organic substitution compounds have been treated more at length. The general arrangement and classification agree essentially with that of the former edition.
Books of this class do not always meet with favor at the hands of reviewers; but any one who has had experience in teaching at American Medical Colleges knows that as long as the present methods continue some such assistance is absolutely essential. It affords to the student an opportunity to keep up with the lectures, and obviates the necessity of taking voluminous notes, in which serious errors are liable to occur. Such books, of course, cannot claim any originality; their merit lies in their accuracy, perspicuity and judicious selection of facts.
I am indebted to Mr. WILLIAM BEAM, for aid in the preparation of the
