FIRST EDITION. 8 vo. Contemp. half cloth. (2), 314, (2) pp. A fine copy. The French chemist, Wurtz (1817-84) made a number of important discoveries in organic chemistry, e.g. the first 'compound ammonia' - ethylamine and the synthesis of ethylene glycol. His reputation as a fine teacher gave France a school of chemistry which could compete with that established by Liebig at Giessen. The present publication of the Societe Chimique de Paris, of which Wurtz was a founding member, contains three lectures by him: a. on the new atomic weights, b. on the theory of types and atomicity, and c. on the relationship of inorganic with organic chemistry. An English translation by William Crookes appeared in 1867. Appended are lectures on thallium by Lamy and on rubidium and cesium by Grandeau. Partington IV. 478. D.S.B. XIV: 529-32. Bolton I.936.
