The Book of Spells: Children's Fantasy Classic (The Wonderful Garden)
Author: Edith Nesbit
Publisher: Musaicum Books
Category: Juvenile Fiction
When the Stanmore parents leave for India, their children, Charles, Caroline and Charlotte, go to their great uncle for a summer holiday in his old house. They find out that one of their ancestors was a witch, the uncle tells them about her lost magic book called The Language of Flowers, and the Three C's start looking for it willing to try different magical charms and spells. Edith Nesbit (1858-1924) was the author of world famous books for children - the tales of fantastical adventures, journeys back in time and travel to magical worlds.
A story quite different from her usual "magic" books, in the ambiguity surrounding the magic. When the three C's cast magical spells from a book on garden lore they find, is the result really magic--or just a series of coincidences? Even the Three C.'s and their friend Rupert stand opposed on this.
The present volume in the organogermanium series describes mononuclear compounds containing only germanium-carbon and germanium-hydrogen bonds (Chapter 1.3). Germanium hydrides with other additional non-carbon ligands, such as halogen or oxygen bonded groups, appear in later chapters according to the Gmelin principle of the last posi tion. Compounds with Ge-H and Ge-O bonds have already been described in Volume 5, Section 220.127.116.11, pp. 50/62. The present volume covers the literature to the end of 1992 and includes many references up to 1994. The nomenclature recommended by IUPAC has been generally adhered to. However, compound names were largely avoided, as most of the compounds are presented in tables and are only identified by their formulas. Many of the data in the tables appear in abbreviated form without units; general explanations are given on pp. X/XI. The volume contains an empirical formula index (p. 327) and a ligand formula index (p.341). The editor wishes to express his gratitude to the former author, Professor J. E. Drake, and to Professor J. Satge for his kind advice and fruitful collaboration. Thanks are due also to Dr. A. R. Pebler for editing the English text and to Mr. H.-G. Karrenberg for drawing the numerous formulas and molecular structures.
