Google Books does not show all the matches in its database. This
aggravating behavior has been occurring for years.

Here are three matches in the HathiTrust database for the phrase "bean to bar".

HathiTrust also presents some spurious matches. For example, searching
for "bean to bar" yields the following match. But the date is
misleading. Volume 86 was published in 2009 and not in 1924. The 1924
date is the founding date of the journal.

Journal of chemical education v.86 no.1-4

Using the information from HathiTrust it is possible to find some
additional matches in Google Books.
