My friend Warren, a collector of fine cartoon books, just wrote in, "Now, the New Yorker has put out cartoon compendiums on dogs, cats, lawyers, technology, baseball and art, amongst others. But how in the world could they have overlooked chemists? Back in 1955, someone beat them to the punch! Attached are scans of possibly the only book of cartoons dedicated to chemistry. George Lichty, Don Flowers, Alan Dunn and a plethora of cartoonists from the magazines of the day like Collier's all have their say about our under appreciated Mixers of Molecules."

Personally, I think Bob Mankoff will cover ever topic possible, but in the meantime, enjoy this sample of one more example from Warren's secret history of comic art.
