293, [1, errata] & [2, blank] pages; Contemporary full sheepskin leather, covers stained in a decorative "tree" pattern, flat spine divided into "panels" with gilt rules and dots, spine label now almost completely eroded. Worn, but complete. Trained as a pharmacist, Pedro Gutiérrez Bueno (1745-1822) was one of the leading writers of works of chemical instruction during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. He attended the Royal Institute at San Isidro, and then passed the necessary examination to be admitted to the "Royal College of Apothecaries" of Madrid in 1777 -- and thus could operate a Pharmacy. But from the start, Gutiérrez Bueno turned his attention to academics and research. His facility with chemicals from the production of drugs also led him to an involvement with businesses such as the manufacture of Suleiman, a mercuric chloride compound used for therapeutic purposes. While he was director of the Royal Laboratory in Madrid, he published a work devoted to methods of analysis of mineral water -- ['Instruccion sobre el mejor metodo de analizar las aguas minerales y en lo posible imitarlas', 1788]. In 1787 he was appointed Professor of chemistry -- a new professorship established by the government in Madrid and held this position until the final years of the eighteenth century. Shortly after the start of classes, Pedro Gutiérrez Bueno wrote a textbook 'Curso de química : teórica, y práctica para la enseñanza del Real Laboratorio de Química de esta corte', which appeared in Madrid in 1788. Along with this course, Pedro Gutierrez Bueno in 1788 published the first translation of Méthode de nomenclature chimique of A. Lavoisier, Guyton de Morveau LB, A. Fourcroy and C. Berthollet, whose text in French had appeared a year earlier. [Método de la nueva nomenclatura quimica propuesto por M.M. de Morveau, Lavoisier, Bertholet, y de Fourcroy, a la Academia de Ciencias de Paris, y traducido al castellano por D. Pedro Gutiérrez Bueno. Madrid: Sancha, 1788]. He also made reports on issues such as the manufacture of gunpowder, installing lightning rods, recognition of mines or the manufacture of dyes -- [Gutiérrez Bueno wrote several works on this commercially important subject]. All this displays the interest and dexterity shown by Pedro Gutiérrez Bueno in various accademic and commercial pursuits of chemistry far afield from his original training and concentration as a pharmacist. In 1804, he went to the newly formed College of Pharmacy in Madrid, as director and professor of chemistry. While many chemists of Gutiérrez Bueno's generation did not readily accept the "new chemistry" and nomenclature of Lavoisier, the Spanish Pharmacist-turned-Chemist became an early believer in the new and powerful nomenclature and was a significant part of the movement which brought about the overthrow the old phlogiston theory. It is true that chemistry texts often had a rough working life, particularly the smaller volumes which might find a place on the work bench. While this copy shows wear to its original binding, with minor worming to the spine and almost complete loss of the original spine label, as well as lifting of the marbled endpapers (with some loss of the rear paste down endpaper), and a minor marginal stain to the lower (blank) corners of the last twenty five leaves -- it has survived intact, complete and sound. There is a (20th century) Surplus Duplicate stamp from the U.S. Library of Congress on the marbled front free-endpaper -- but there are no other marks of any sort, either institutional or private. Complete. 8vo. Collation: A - S 8 T4 [T4 is blank]. 293, [1, errata] & [2, blank] pp. There are three different OCLC listings for this title, each locating just a single copy. [OCLC: 433420267 -- Bibliotheca Nacional de Espana; OCLC: 651329608 -- Bibliotheca Nacional Mexico; and OCLC: 54151818 -- Yale University]. A rare book. N° de ref. de la librería 39471
