6th, revised and re-written, edition. From the preface: “IN order to make possible a more systematic treatment of the subject and a fuller and better-adjusted consideration of recent advances, it has been found advisable to make somewhat extensive alterations in the now twenty-three-year-old general framework of the book. These changes affect, more especially, those chapters which deal with equilibria in one and two component systems. These chapters have not only been revised, but have been re-cast, re-arranged, and, to a considerable extent, rewritten. In these sections, the nature of the equilibria in intensively dried systems and the Smits theory of allotropy have also been discussed, although the limitations of space have necessitated brevity. Greater emphasis, also, has been laid on the applications of the Clausius-Clapeyron equation to the calculation of changes of equilibria with pressure and temperature.”
