1960’s Golden Book of Chemistry Experiments, by Robert Brent and Harry Lazarus, is now freely browsable on Scribd, and can be downloaded as a .PDF after either paying $5 or uploading a document of your own in exchange. The book has been held up over and over again as the ultimate classic chemistry manual, usually in a “they don’t make ‘em like they used to” context. Considered unpublishable today because of liability concerns, used copies of old printings go for hundreds of dollars on Amazon. It has been spottily available as a torrent for some time, and though we have linked to web-based PDFs before, those URLs have all long since gone dark. [via Boing Boing]
