Washington Carnegie Institution 1903 Wraps Good Chemistry Size: Approx. 7" x 10" Figures 
With Application to Bromine, Iodine, Chloroform, Bromoform, Carbon Tetrachloride, Phosphorus and Water. "It has been suggested recently that since the volume of a solid or liquid must be determined in part by the internal pressures to which it is subjected by chemical affinity and cohesion, the compressibilities of substances are probably data of important chemical significance. In attempting to interpret this significance, the enquirer at once faces the fact that few pertinent compressibilities are accurately known...In order to fill this important gap in physicochemical knowledge, the following investigation was undertaken." Original green wraps. 45 pp. some pages uncut. 5 figures/text illustrations. Mild soiling to covers, some discoloration around edges. 1" top front corner missing and back top left corner 1/2" x 1/2" missing. 1 3/4" tear to back gutter otherwise wraps are intact. ex-mus. stamp(very light) and numbers on front.
