Elemens de Chymie theorique et pratique, rediges dans un nouvel ordre, d'apres les decouvertes modernes, pour servir aux Cours publics de l'Academie de Dijon
Dijon: Chez L. N. Frantin, 1777. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good. First Edition. Vol 1: [6],viii,394 pages. Vol II: [4], xxviii, 382 pages. Vol III: [4], x, 448, [4] pages. Vol 1 is in a period binding but rough with staining and loose. It also lacks the 2 plates. We have supplied a second copy of Vol 1 with the 2 plates in a later binding as a supplement. Volume II is sound and in a period binding. Vol III has one page (251) which was an end-sheet in the binding process - the margins are lacking, but the text is complete. Volume III is also rebacked in a period style retaining the original boards with portions of the original spine laid down. A hard set to put together, and rarely found complete and matched. 'A famous textbook by Guyton de Morveau and his colleagues, written to accompany the course of chemistry they gave under the auspices of the Academy of Dijon. Guyton planned the course and gave most of the lectures with the assistance of Dr. Maret (1726-1786) on materia medica and Dr Durande (d1794) on the chemistry of vegetable substances. 'The work was hailed throughout Europe as an important milestone and de Morveau became famous almost overnight. The treatise is important and interesting, for we can see that de Morveau already had the main lines fixed in his mind of those ideas which were later to appear in his Nomenclature chimique, which was first published by him in the Journal de Physique (1782), and finally adopted by Lavoisier, Fourcroy and Bethrollet in 1787' (Duveen)' (Neville I, p568). Hard Cover.
