Reviews

“A model of thoroughness and scholarly organization, which will be the starting point for all future workers in the field.”
Ambix

“This is a model publication and should be examined by anyone seriously considering putting together a guide to archival sources whatever the industry.”
Pharmacy in History

“An excellent tool.”
Industrial Archaeology Review

“This book will help make obscure and fugitive archives known and used. It contains de- tailed histories of about 190 chemical com- panies and the archival holdings in over a hundred repositories.” “The attempt is brave and the result use- ful. The sketches of the individual compa- nies are, taken as a whole, unique, and provide an image of the richness of the late-nineteenth-century chemical industry.”
