      Chemistry of Essential Oils Vol. 2 Online  Bookmark   

Some months ago I scanned the first volume of Ernest J. Parry's The Chemistry of Essential Oils and Artificial Perfumes and made it available to the world. Now I have completed volume 2 (of 2), and I hope that you will find that the wait was worthwhile.

For those interested in retro-tech, this volume may offer a number of interesting procedures, patent numbers, and old journal references to dig through. It is certainly more focused on chemistry than the first volume was.

Since I now have OCR software handy, I have not manually prepared a clickable index for this volume. Instead, I have embedded the recognized and searchable text beneath the scanned images. I have also processed volume 1 in the same manner, so it too is now searchable.

As on previous occasions, it would be nice if a friendly bee could convert these PDFs into DjVu format (the existing volume 1 DjVu file is now obsolete), stick 'em in zip files, and let me add them to my page for those who don't have the bandwidth to grab tens of megabytes.

Here you go, the file both as a plain DjVu file, as well as zipped for those of you having trouble downloading it in plain format. It is only 19% of the original size, while the image quality being negligibly degraded.
