The Red House Mystery is a detective novel by A. A. Milne, better known for his children's writing, who wrote this book for his father in 1922. It is his only mystery novel and was very popular at the time.
Mark Ablett is the amiable host of a countryhouse party to which his estranged brother, Robert, arrives from Australia. Robert is the black sheep of the family who is said to have borrowed money in the past and had written to warn of his visit. One afternoon a gunshot is heard, and Robert is found shot in the head while locked in the library, while his brother Mark has vanished. Tony Gillingham, who has arrived to visit Bill Beverley, one of the guests at the houseparty, takes it upon himself to investigate the death. Together Tony and Bill form a Holmes and Watson partnership and seek to solve the mystery in an unorthodox manner, taking over from a bumbling police force.
The Red House Mystery has divided opinion on its literary merit but it remains an entertaining and intriguing read nonetheless.
An exhaustive resource for the industrial chemical community
Through eleven editions, Gardner's Chemical Synonyms and Trade Names has become the best-known and most widely used source of information on chemicals in commerce. This companion book reflects the continuing research underlying Gardner's and presents a major expansion of the information provided for individual chemical compounds.
Gardner's Commercially Important Chemicals: Synonyms, Trade Names, and Properties:
* Contains 4,174 chemical entries and information such as structure, molecular formula, and chemical name
* Includes synonyms for each chemical, including other identifiers, chemical names, trade names, and trivial names, in English and other languages
* Provides chemical properties of the compounds, information concerning known uses of the chemical and biological data-in particular, acute toxicity in various species, where available
* Lists the companies that manufacture or supply the listed chemicals
* Describes bulk inorganic chemicals, major pesticides (herbicides, insecticides, antifungal agents, etc.), and many dyestuffs, surfactants, and metals, along with the most commonly used drugs
* Contains indexes by chemical name and synonym, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) Registry Numbers, and EINECS (European Inventory of Existing Commercial Substances) numbers
One useful feature of this database is the inclusion of physical properties and use data for pure chemicals. Properties that have been provided, when available, include: the melting point, boiling point, density or specific gravity, optical rotation, ultraviolet absorption, solubility, and acute toxicity. The major uses of most of the chemicals are indicated and, where appropriate, regulatory information is also provided.
A Comprehensive Reference On Vitamin D CHEMISTRY
This hands-on, comprehensive reference provides accessible, organized information on the structures and applications of Vitamin D and its related chemicals. The most extensive published list of Vitamin D molecules, it provides a record for approximately 950 derivatives of Vitamins D2 and D3. Information provided of each compound includes:
Structure, chemical name, synonyms, and properties
Information on bioactivities, structure-activity relationships (SAR), synthesis, and toxicity data
CAS registry number and/or NLM PubChem chemical identification number
References to published work on the compound
This unique, full perspective on the chemistry of Vitamin D includes detailed indexes that facilitate the search for a specific compound. With monographs of all the chemicals related to Vitamin D in published literature, Vitamin D Handbook: Structures, Synonyms, and Properties is an invaluable resource for anyone conducting research on Vitamin D, including chemists, biochemists, research directors, and clinical directors. It is also an excellent resource for graduate students.

The events of 1968 are often seen purely as a student revolution, but impacted on every aspect of French society - theatre, film, sexuality, race, the countryside, the factories. This volume explores the full diversity of this extraordinary upheaval, and shows how 1968 continues to reverberate in France today.
This work is the first to study the gentlemen's clubs that were an important feature of the Late Victorian landscape, and the first to discover the secret history of clubmen and their world, placing them at centre stage, detailing how clubland dramatically shaped 19th and early 20th-century ideas about gender, power, class, and the city.
