Excerpt from The Chemistry and Literature of Beryllium This book is written with the main object in view of saving preliminary study and labor to future investigators of beryllium and to point out some of the peculiarities of this interesting element which are apt to lead the novitiate toward erroneous conclusions. Especially is it desired to call attention to the fact that a large proportion of its accredited compounds are in reality but indefinite solid solutions. This condition of the literature of beryllium is due to the abnormal extent to which its hydroxide is soluble in solutions of its normal salts, giving rise to solids of almost any degree of basicity or to solutions with decreased osmotic effects. Accordingly, results of analysis, freezing points, etc., give little evidence of the true nature of its compounds, unless accompanied by proved definiteness of composition, a proof too often omitted throughout the whole field of inorganic chemistry, but nowhere more than in studying beryllium and its compounds. More labor has been expended upon the bibliography than its limited extent may seem to indicate. It is believed that it will be found to contain references to ail or nearly all the original articles on beryllium and that the references to abstracts will also be found fairly complete through 1902. Since 1902 the original articles and chief abstracts have alone been entered. It has been deemed advisable to include a brief abstract, at times critical in tone, of each article, but it is not claimed that these abstracts always cover the full subject matter of the original, although nothing important is intentionally omitted. The Journals examined are approximately the same as those listed in James Lewis Howe's unexcelled Bibliography of the Platinum Metals and the plan followed is in general the same as outlined by him. The abbreviations used are familiar to all chemists. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
