Demi-basane, dos lisse orné et titré en lettres dorées, tranches jaunes (reliure de l'époque, quelques défauts). Première édition in-8, parue en même temps qu'une édition in-4, de cet ouvrage important qui dressait un panorama complet de la chimie nouvelle. "In the 'Connaissances Chimiques' Fourcroy included the vast knowledge of Chemistry acquired during his career as a professor, much of it based on his own unpublished observations. He gave particular prominence to the latest discoveries of the French Chemists but the index of names shows that those of foreing chemists were by no means neglected. The treatise was well received, and was translated into English, German and Spanish" (Smeaton). Quelques feuillets brunis. Bel exemplaire par ailleurs, agréablement relié à l'époque et bien complet du volume de tables, paru un an plus tard et qui manque souvent. Smeaton, "Fourcroy 1755-1809", p.77.
Bookseller: Llibreria Antiquària Comellas [Spain]
