Photo CHAPTAL, Jean-Antoine. 

First edition of the first work of Chaptal.
First volume, only published.
After three years spent in Paris (1777-1780), Chaptal was offered in 1780 a chair of chemistry at the Royal Society of Sciences of Montpellier.
"It was from this moment that Chaptal's brilliant career in science began.
The revolution in chemistry was at hand. However, the old doctrine of phlogiston still prevailed and it was this doctrine that Chaptal taught at first and in his first courses that he took up in his first work. He then quickly rallied to the ideas developed by Lavoisier. "(Flourens. Eloge de Chaptal. 1835)
