Reviewed: "For all its homegrown qualities
and its unpretentious appearance, the original was a milestone in the history
of science, a classical work detailing the origins of many of the analytical
methods commonly used today. ...Dr. Barak has carefully and painstakingly
produced an edition that is as faithful to the original as possible while still
taking full advantage of the benefits of modern typesetting, printing, and
binding....This edition will be useful for scholars of the history and
development of science, as well as for scientists with a love of historical
tradition.... his book still remains a valuable reference work for both modern
and historical contexts and should find a place on bookshelves of students,
researchers, and libraries, not to mention laboratory benches.
(l-to-r) Prof. Steve Ventura, Dept Chair; Ann Curtis; and Assoc. Prof. Phillip Barak, with newly-arrived copies of 'Soil Chemical Analysis'
