Antoine Baumé was an 18th-century French chemist who is only remembered by two of his works – ‘Elements of Pharmacy’ and ‘Experimental Chemistry’. In the latter, Baume covers the processes and improvements to various science experiments that include hydrometer studies, silk bleaching and dyes, purification of water and other elements, and experiments with air and fire. This fine three-volume set is illustrated with engravings detailing the experiments as well as necessary tools and instruments.\

 

According to Duveen, this work is

“One of the very latest and at the same time the best textbooks based on the phlogiston theory by one of the most distinguished eighteenth century French chemists.”
