Reprint "strictly limited to 100 copies". Cloth, green spine-panel, 8vo, xxi, 487, 598 pp. Approximately 2,500 entries. Bibliotheca Chemica is the catalogue of the collection of James Young, which was acquired by Ferguson and is now in the library of Strathclyde University. The collection (and therefore the bibliography) was the most extensive ever assembled and covered not merely early chemistry but also alchemical and pharmaceutical books. Quite apart from the wealth of bibliographical information, Ferguson provides detailed biographical information on the authors, with notes on their sources, impact and worth. "As a bibliography, it is an extremely detailed, scholarly piece of work. The items themselves have precise title-page transcriptions and collations. Ferguson carefully noted other works by the same author, other editions and translations of the work fully described, references to the author in many other standard works (eg histories and encyclopaedias) and, unusually for a bibliography, a concise and critical biographical account of the author and appraisal of his work. Ferguson's facts and judgements have in most cases yet to be superseded." - Pritchard. ".a masterpiece of bibliographical research.almost all the important Alchemical works are listed" - Heym.
