This is a scan of the Chemistry merit badge series book from the Boy Scouts of America.
The small book walks you through some basics of chemistry, and things you should know to achieve the merit badge. It lists a number of resources a person would find helpful to understand chemistry.
The actual date of this book is a little unclear- the book's copyright date is 1937, but it seems likely that this is a later reprint because there are several references to later dates in the book. The Merit Badge Library list at the end says "corrected to March 1, 1956", so that seems closest to the actual publishing date for this copy.
