"Lemery's highly successful Cours de chymie, which served as the textbook to his popular courses on chemistry, brought French chemical teaching out of the quasi-mystical paracelsian tradition into the mainstream of Cartesian and atomistic natural philosophy" (Norman). It enjoyed unprecedented success and sold, as Fontenelle comments, like a work of romance or satire. Lemery's clear and entertaining presentation of chemistry in corpuscular-mechanist terms contributed to the works overwhelming popularity. It went through numerous editions, and was translated into all the major European languages..
