  • The overall worth of the book remains. It is recommended alike for those preparing or attending introductory courses in geochemical analysis and to those working full time in the field.

    It is quite obvious that this book has been written by practising analysts with similar readers in mind who wish to make reference to an up-to-date handbook on the analysis of elements of silicate rock and like materials. The methods, arranged alphabetically in relation to the elements, are well set out in standard form and are frequently described, with alternative procedures... The procedures themselves are sufficiently detailed to be of immediate use, often without need to delve into the numerous references...well worth having in the laboratory...
