Duveen 339b (this copy); Duveen and Klickstein 121; Wellcome III, p. 460; Norman 1288. - FIRST EDITION OF LAVOISIER'S FIRST MAJOR WORK, a 'pioneer work' (Duveen and Klickstein), in which Lavoisier first expressed his doubts about the phlogiston theory. The first part contains an historical review of the experiments with gases of Lavoisier's predecessors. In part 2 Lavoisier records the quantitative experiments in combustion and calcination that he had carried out with great excitement during the previous year, and which had 'confirmed Lavoisier's suspicions that air, or some constituent of air, played an important role in the processes of combustion and calcination' (DSB).
