Élémens de Chimie. Quatrième édition.
A Paris: Chez Deterville,... An XI -- . Fourth edition, essentially a reprint of the revised and expanded third edition. This was one of the most important textbooks of chemistry of the period; it was written for the course of chemistry which Chaptal gave at Montpellier where he was appointed to the new chair of chemistry in 1780. In this work, Chaptal "develops the general principles, pointing out their consequences and their applications. He adopts Lavoisier's oxygen theory which he found of great benefit in both theoretical and practical chemistry. In this work he proposes that the name azote be changed to nitrogene" (Cole, note to the first edition). Cole 257. DSB III, pp. 198-203. Partington, III, pp. 557-560.3 volumes, 8vo, 3 leaves, pp. (iii)-xcii, 361; 2 leaves, pp. 458; 2 leaves, pp. 496. Contemporary calf-backed boards, spines gilt with red labels. Mild foxing at the beginning of vol. 1, three joints just cracking, but a very attractive and clean set.
