About the Author:

Anna Marie Roos, Ph.D. (1997) in History, University of Colorado, is a research associate at the Wellcome Unit at Oxford University. She has published extensively in the history of science including Luminaries in the Natural World (Peter Lang, 2001).

Review:

"The Salt of the Earth is a work that meets a high scholarly standard . . .  it should be of interest to any student of early modern chemistry, medicine, and natural philosophy" --Victor D. Boantza, Isis, 100: 1 (2009), 166-167.

Roos has identified an extremely important component of the history of early modern chymistry, and one hopes that others will follow her lead . . .
Pamela H. Smith, Columbia University
--British Journal for the History of Science 42:1 (2009),130-132.
