[Paris]: , [1793]. [Paris], [1793]. First Edition. Disbound from a larger volume retaining the plain front wrapper.. Very good.. 4to, 80 pages and 11 engraved folding plates of appliances and buildings. A learned and detailed account of the extraction of potash and various salts written during the frenzied days of the French Revolution. The work is primarily a technological treatise whose effective use did not come into being until 1805 - 1810 (the period of effective English embargo of the continent). There is a note on the title stating that this copy was presented by the American geologist William Maclure. Laid in is a contemporary comment inquiring if the work had been registered with the appropriate government committee. See Partington III for a commentary on the authors.
