Excerpt from Food The favour with which a work of mine on Household Chemistry was received in 1851, both by the Press and the Public, is sufficient evidence that there was a demand for a work of the kind. The titles of the several chapters were imitated from the late Professor Liebig's Chemistry of Food. The sixth edition of my book was printed in 1867; in the seventh edition I dropped the articles on food. The present volume is largely based upon my Household Chemistry, supplemented by increased experience, both analytically and otherwise.
