Verlag: Hes Publishers, Utrecht, 1986 reprint of the 1949 first edition (which was limited to 200 copies)
Cloth, 8vo, 668, 98 pp. Approximately 2,000 entries. Issued with: The Duveen collection of alchemy & chemistry/H. P. Kraus Originally published: London: E. Weil, 1949 From Duveen's introduction: "My main interest was, and indeed still is, the gathering of old and newer books on chemistry, but as the harvest proceeded I soon found other more or less related subjects being involved; alchemy, technology, metallurgy, mineralogy, dyeing, pharmacy and balneology. A special word about this last subject is not amiss, for the important part which many early works on balneology play in providing details of contemporary development and practice in analytical chemistry does not appear to have been previously recorded. .The Young collection [catalogued in Ferguson's Bibliotheca Chemica] was particularly strong in 16th and 17th century books on both alchemy and chemistry - it was comparatively weak in 18th century works relating to chemistry and contained virtually no 19th century chemical works. These latter two centuries are important to the student of the history of chemistry, and my own collection provides a considerable selection of representative works relating to this period."
