1941 Vintage Perfume Book Find

I was delighted to discover this lovely vintage book in my home while tidying up. I think it might have belonged to one of my grandparents or one of my aunts. I had completely forgotten it was on the shelf.

The full title is 'Perfumes, Cosmetics and Soaps with Special Reference to Synthetics by William A. Poucher - Volume One Being A Dictionary of Raw Materials Together With An Account of the Nomenclature of Synthetics'. 

It was originally printed in 1923, and this is the 1941 Fifth Edition. I think there might be a Volume II as well.
