About this Item

Second edition, comprehending the recent discoveries. 8vo. xi, [1], 619, [1] pp. 9 plates (, pl. IV bound facing p. 456, plates 8 and 9 bound toward the beginning), figures; plates slightly foxed. Original calf, gilt-stamped red leather spine label; spine replaced with kozo, title label chipped. Very good. The author of this work, John White Webster (1811-1850), was a Harvard chemistry professor, respected lecturer, and editor of chemical works. However, his promising career was cut short after he was charged and hanged for the murder of George Parkman over an unpaid debt in a highly sensationalized crime that rocked the city of Boston.
