A Dictionary of Chemistry and the Allied Branches of Other Sciences (5 vols.)

London, England: Longmans, Green, & Co., 1866. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good hardcover copies of "A Dictionary of Chemistry and the Allied Branches of Other Sciences" by Henry Watts. Complete five volume, 1st edition set. Contains original brown cloth boards for all five volumes. Ex-library copies with black binding tape covering all five bindings. This appears to have been done long ago (indeed the college is older than the set). Curious about exactly what lies underneath the tape. Cannot tell what, if any, of the original bindings still remains. Too delicate a job for myself to investigate further. Typical library withdrawal markings and old college bookplate. This is an ideal set for a professional to remake the bindings using what is still there and the original cloth boards. Otherwise clean pages. A few supplements were printed later, the first of which is currently available for purchase elsewhere. Was completely rewritten and published in 1894. This version is still being used today. So, someone looking for the Antiquarian experience can find it here in its entirety. Enjoy this 1st edition of a hugely important tome in the field of chemistry! Good. Item #2864
