A 1960s home experimentation chemistry book for children. From back in a time where if a chemist sold a child some compound, and the child proceeded to blow their fingers off, it was tough luck for the child.
Detailed instructions on how to improvise a lab and how to source dangerous chemicals from common household items.
No mention of asking for adult supervision. Pure mayhem.
Tells you to pour your waste materials down your kitchen drain.
There are interesting errors - brass and glass are listed as solutions. Glass being a liquid, is one of those little odd science facts that gets repeated by people who should know better - as glass is very obviously not a liquid. The flow marks on old glass are down to the manufacturing. The marks gave people the impression glass was slowly flowing like syrup.
One of the experiments in the book. Is to brew a pint of water/sugar/yeast, and then distill the alcohol, using a tin can as your kettle and another tin can as your condenser.
