First edition.

This book is a biography of William Higgins (1763 - 1825), who was an Irish chemist and writer. He studied chemistry with his uncle, Bryan Higgins, who was also a chemist. He is best known for his important work on industrial chemistry and his research, which focuses on atomic theory and "ultimate" particle combinations, and has inspired other scientists.

Following the biography, two of his texts are reproduced: "A comparative view of the phlogistic and anti-phlogistic theories" and "Experiments and observations on the atomic theory and electrical phenomena".
