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.

This book is about fundamental concepts that any chemistry student should not only be aware of but proficient at. It deals with the states of matter, the mole, the shapes of molecules, the elements and their properties in the periodic table, etc.

In this book the author is developing the subject as logically as possible from the descriptive and experimental side; each law and theory has been presented at the point which seems best fitted both to the student and to the subject.

My intention here is to collect several articles by scientists who contributed to the development of knowledge about atoms and elements, and to provide sufficient background and commentary to place the work of these pioneers in context.
