Synopsis: The Origins of Chemistry integrates the histories of Greek, Arabic, and Latin alchemical traditions with philosophy, technology, and the genesis of medical chemistry. Multhauf differs from his predecessors by finding the sources of chemistry not in medieval alchemy, but in the "chemical" science of matter described in antiquity. This landmark study, which concludes with the field's reorganization by Lavoisier and his contemporaries, contains an exceptional bibliography of primary and secondary sources.
Robert P. Multhauf is retired from the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., where he was Director of the Museum of History and Technology.

Review: The Origins of Chemistry is an important contribution to intellectual history as well as to the history of chemistry.
–ISIS

This is a professionals book for professionals, but like so many of the best books of which this can be said, it will bring great pleasure to anyone, scientist or not by occupation, who can claim to be scientifically educated.
