2 p.l., 477 pp. 8vo, orig. printed wrappers (spine & upper wrappers somewhat chipped, some dampstaining & light browning), uncut. Paris: Firmin Didot Bros. & J.B. Baillière, 1835.
Second edition. “The revised, corrected, greatly enlarged, and final French edition of this important work, in which the table of atomic and molecular weights is considerably augmented. Very scarce.”–Neville, I, p. 147. The first edition of this book — Paris, 1819 — presented Berzelius’ electrochemical (or dualistic) theory, which dominated the chemical world for many years. The table presented in the first edition, and here greatly enlarged, was the first attempt at a complete list of atomic weights.
