Garrison-Morton 666.1; Lindeboom 478; Partington II, 744; Cushing B460; DSB II, p.227. First complete edition in English, preceded only by an abridged version published in 1732. This Dallowe edition was translated from the 1732 authorized Latin edition of Boerhaave's Elementa Chimiae. The 1733 Dallowe edition cited by Lindeboom (relying on Van der Aa) is not recorded by ESTC and presumably a ghost. Boerhaave's work "remained the authoritative chemical manual for decades... In 1732 seven editions were published simultaneously in Europe." (DSB). The engraved plates are depicting laboratory apparatus, thermometers etc.
