First edition of Fourcroy's chief work, written for the advanced student, complete with the extensive index Table alphabétique et analytique des matières. His lectures were noted for their completeness and clarity as well as brilliant delivery. The lectures are contained in the present work, which according to Ferguson "is the best account of the state of the science at the time."
