First complete edition in German of Berzelius’ Läbok I Kemien (1808-30), “the most authoritative chemistry textbook of the period.”–D.S.B., II, p. 92. The translation was made by Friedrich Wöhler (1800-82), the prominent German chemist who trained under Berzelius, became fast friends with the great Swedish chemist, and translated many of the writings of Berzelius into German (see D.S.B., XIV, pp. 474-79). This was a very influential edition and formed the basis of the numerous translations into French, Dutch, and Italian.

Fine set.

❧ Partington, IV, pp. 142-77.
