Description
 
Easton Press, Norwalk. CT. Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier "The Elements of Chemistry". Luxuriously bound in full genuine leather. Limited Edition. Collector's Edition.

The book is considered to be the first modern chemical textbook. It contained a list of elements, or substances that could not be broken down further, which included oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, phosphorus, mercury, zinc, and sulfur. It also forms the basis for the modern list of elements. The list, however, also included light and caloric, which he believed to be material substances but are not elements.

About the author

Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier was a French nobleman and chemist central to the 18th-century Chemical Revolution and a large influence on both the histories of chemistry and biology.
