Introduction to General Chemistry
by H.N. McCoy, E.M. Terry
Publisher: McGraw-Hill 1920
Number of pages: 672
The book has been written for college Freshmen, and, as its title implies, it is intended to serve as an introduction to general chemistry. In consequence we have aimed to present a continuous and connected story in teachable form and have not attempted to give extensive descriptive and numerical data where such matter is of little interest to the student or is not needed for the development of important principles.
