Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from An Epitome Chemistry, in Three Parts: Intended to Facilitate, to the Student, the Acquisition of Chemical Knowledge by Minute Instructions for the Performance of Experiments; Directions for the Analysis of Mineral Waters, of Earths and Stones, of Ores of Metals Our interest, indeed, respecting philosophers is seldom excitefif unless by a knowledge of the additions they have made to the facts or theo ries of a science and with these a lecturer may fairly presume, however the fact may really be, that his hearers, at the commencement of a course, are wholly -unacquaintecl. It may be added, that the history of chemistry admits of little illustration from experiment and I shall always be reluctant to bestow time on those subjects, which, requiring not the aid of an ap peal to the senses, are equally well adapted for private study. On these grounds, therefore, I hope to be ex cused for infringing the general plan of lectiires on chemistry, and devoting to other purposes the t1me that would have been allotted to the history of the science. For this will be substi tuted a brief view of the nature and objects of chemistry, - of its connection with the arts and with other sciences, - and an outline of the plan on which the following lectures will be conducted.
