The arsenal of eighteenth-century chemistry: The laboratories of Antoine Laurent Lavoisier (1743-1794) by Marco Beretta and Paolo Brenni.Leiden & Boston: Brill, 2022.
"The substantial collection of Antoine Laurent Lavoisier’s apparatus is not the only surviving collection of eighteenth-century chemical apparatus and instrumentation, but it is without question the most important. The present study provides the first scientific catalogue of Lavoisier’s surviving apparatus. This collection of instruments is remarkable not only for the quality of many of them but, above all, for the number of items that have survived (ca. 600 items). Given such a wealth and variety of instruments, this study also offers the first comprehensive attempt to reconstruct the cultural and social context of Lavoisier’s experimental activities" (publisher).
