A Simple Guide To Modern Valency Theory - George Ingham Brown

Longmans, Green & Co., 1953, Hardback.
Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Ex-library with usual marks. Fraying at the head of the spine. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the cover: “THIS book is intended to bridge the gap which the author believes to exist between the treatment of valency given in standard text-books of chemistry and that given in the more advanced works devoted entirely to valency. It is intended for use by advanced sixth form pupils, by first-year university students, and by older chemists who are interested in modern developments but who may not have the time or inclination to study the more advanced works. The treatment of the material is simple, concise, and mainly qualitative; mathematical considerations and experimental details have been reduced to a minimum. The aim has been to give a general account of modern valency theory which can be easily and readily grasped, and which will, it is hoped, help towards a fuller understanding of chemistry as a whole.”
