C. Schuh, Bibliography of Mineralogy, 3422; J. Etienne, Impressions bouillonnaises, p. 83. - VERY RARE FIRST EDITION of the Bouillon print. "Monnet was appointed France's first inspector-general of mines in 1774, and as a consequence, he traveled extensively in Alsace and the German states to study metallurgy and mining. Most of his publications are the result of these activities and are centered on mineralogy, mining, and metallurgy ... In this work, a New System of Mineralogy he attempts to create a classification based primarily on chemistry. He includes references to many contemporary German and Swedish scientists. In a supplement he describes methods for dissolving metals in acid that defends his positions against allegations made by Macquer in his Dictionnaire de Chymie." (Schuh).
Antoine-Grimold Monnet (1734-1817) est un chimiste francais. Cet ouvrage renferme une foule de faits curieux et d'observations geologiques tres interessantes encore aujourd'hui, par la precision et l'independance de toute idee systematique avec lesquelles elles sont souvent presentees. Rare impression de Bouillon. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
