A Concise History of Chemistry
by Thomas Percy Hilditch
Publisher: D. Van Nostrand 1911
Number of pages: 292
This book is an attempt to outline as briefly and succinctly as possible the historical development of chemistry. It is presumed that the reader is simultaneously acquiring, or already possesses, a fair knowledge of present-day chemical theory and practice, and, accordingly, no space is devoted to the actual explanation of hypotheses or reactions except in so far as the latter are directly bound up with the historical sequence of facts.
