A PRACTICAL HANDBOOK of DYEING and CALICO-PRINTING. In 1 vol. 8vo.with 11 Page Plates, 49 Specimens of Dyed and Printed Fabrics, and 36 Woodcuts, price 42s.
'Mr. CROOKES's book may be best compared with the earlier work of Shützenberger, which, however, it surpasses in the special attention paid to dyeing properly so-called. As regards completeness, execution, and the patterns, dyed and printed, it may rank
among the best works ever produced in this department. We cannot, therefore, omit calling to it the attention of such of our readers as are conversant with the English language, and shall be happy to assist them in procuring copies.'

On the MANUFACTURE of BEET-ROOT SUGAR in ENGLAND and IRELAND. In crown 8vo. with 11 Wood Engravings, price 8s. 6d. 'Mr. CROOKES's book gives us a complete history of the sugar-beet, its varieties, composition, and culture, and includes an elaborate account of the manufacture of beetroot sugar and spirit. The last chapters relate to the accessory subject of the production of potassium salts from beets, and to the
excise regulations. Considering the growing extent and the improvements continually introduced, this work may be regarded as satisfactorily representing the present position of the industry of which it treats. It is essentially a manufacturer's manual.'
