$6 00 In this Dictionary there are so many heads of subjects that it is found quite impossi. hle to give a full list of the contents of the volume within the lirits of a circular like the present. It may, however, be safely stated that there is hardly a single dye ware, or a chemical used in dyeing or printing, hardly a color or a shade, not a textile fabrio which can be dyed or printed, upon which there is not a separate and distinct article, besides the numerous references made to it in other parts of the book.

Besides the very thorough essay on coal tar colors and their application to dyeing and calico printing, it may be well to call special attention to the numerous receipts for dyes and colors and the articles on the separate coloring matters, their composition and uses, such as all the acids used in bleaching, dyeing, and printing; acidimetry; acetates ; geing; air; alcohol: albumen; alkalimetry; ammonia ; animalization; bleaching; block printing; cleansing ; cleaning; colors, their nature and names ; Chevreul's system of naming colors; chromatic circles of colors ; shades of colors; influence of colors upon one another; nccidental colors; stability and fastness of colors; cotton; delaines; discharges; dyeing, general principles of; equivalent weights; fibrous substances; four; glue; gluten ; gum; gum substitutes ; hydrates; hydrometer; hygrometer; indigo and indigo vats, an elaborate article ; light; madder and madder colors, an elaborate article; mixed fabrics, dyeing of; mordants ; oils and futty matters; preparing; soaps of various kinds, with their action ; resists; shaded styles of printing ; silk; starch ; steain colors ; sugar; thickenings; thermometers of different kinds ; water, its composition, its tests, and its action, with a table showing the action of water upon various bodies and strengths of solutions of some of them. .
