To discuss embryological thought in seventeenth-century England is to discuss the main currents in
embryological thought at a time when those currents were both numerous and shifting. Like every other
period, the seventeenth century was one of transition. It was an era of explosive growth in scientific ideas and
techniques, suffused with a creative urge engendered by new philosophical insights and the excitement of
The popular favor with which former editions of this work have been received has required the production of
such a vast number of copies, that the original electrotype plates from which it has heretofore been printed,
have been completely worn out.
The book has been re-produced in London, England, where six editions have already been necessary to supply
the demand for it.
In order to continue its publication to meet the demand which is still active in this country, it has been
necessary, inasmuch as the original electrotype plates have become worn and useless, to re-set the work

The best way to understand and remember technical terms is to understand first their component parts, or roots.

Noting a marked lack of comprehensiveness and/or contemporaneity
among typical reference works on chemical etymology[1-7]
as well as a
somewhat spotty coverage of chemical terms and their etymology in
comprehensive dictionaries and textbooks
the present author decided
to write an up-to-date desk reference on chemical etymology which
would satisfy the needs of casual readers as well as those of more
demanding users of etymological lore.
I am way past grammar school, believe me, but the
words “Go look it up” still strike terror in my heart. Not
because I do not like to look up new terms—far from it.
The problem is that I cannot look up just one! I get side-
tracked right away by intriguing entries that I just might
want to use someday. In the interest of expediency, it is
much easier to have someone tell me the meaning.
Medicine has its own unique breed of terms, founded
