      Chemistry of Essential Oils online
(Rated as: excellent)

I have recently finished scanning another book. I really shouldn't spend so
much time on such a dull and repetitious task, but I love the books and the
books love me. Since I was unable to obtain (for now) the book on alkaloids that
I wished to scan, and I spotted an interesting pair of books in the same section
of the library, I tackled them instead.

I present to you Ernest J. Parry's Chemistry of the Essential Oils and
Artificial Perfumes
. Alibris.com would charge you $330 for the 1908 edition
of this work in "fair" condition. If you flew to Washington, D.C. and visited
the Library of Congress, you would be able to look at the 1918 edition. However,
all you need to do is visit my website and endure a ~40 MB download to obtain
the final 1921 edition in glorious bookmarked PDF format.

You may or may not have any use for essential oils, their components, and
derivatives thereof. But if you do care about them, or at least harbor a
passing interest, I heartily suggest you download the work and see for yourself.
It's just a mouse click away and costs only as much as your bandwidth.

Unlike some of my earlier scanning projects, the probability of anyone still
holding or caring about the copyright to this work is asymptotic to zero. It
will therefore become a permanent feature of my minimalist home page, and not a
time-limited download as earlier works have been. If anyone who has the
LizardTech DjVu compressor would like to convert this PDF to DjVu so I can offer
a more compact download, that would be fantastic.

Be aware that I have finished only Volume 1 of 2 as of this writing. I will
certainly update my page when Volume 2 is completed, and probably make an
announcement here as well.

      Conversion to DjVu  Bookmark   

I have converted the 43MB PDF file to a 8MB DejaVu file, and uploaded it to ../rhodium/djvu /parry1.djvu - could somebody check that it is not corrupt?

      Could you provide a .zip of that?  Bookmark   

I'd like to put the DjVu version on my page too. However, my browser wants to interpret it as text when I try to download it, which I think is probably a Bad Thing. Even wget interpreted it as text. If it were stuck inside a ZIP file I'm sure I would have no problems snagging it.

      Thanks  Bookmark   

Both versions are now on my page. If bees want to be kind to my bandwidth they'll download Rhodium's DjVu copy. Or you can still grab the big PDF...
