Chemistry is a book that was in Stain'd-by-the-Sea's Library.


The book is very large, and has no index, making navigation difficult.

The beginning of the book reads:

Chemistry is a branch of science dealing with the basic elementary substances of which all bodies and matter are composed, and the laws that regulate the combination of these elements when forming compounds, and the phenomena that occur when such bodies are exposed to differing physical conditions and environments.

Lemony Snicket considers it incredibly boring.


  • Cleo Knight later quotes the opening word-for-word, implying that she read the book.[1]
