Produced after a symposium commemorating the centennial of Marcelin Berthelot's birth. Berthelot (1827-1907) was a French scientist who made landmark contributions to synthetic organic chemistry. Includes a biographical essay, a comprehensive bibliography of Berthelot's publications, tributes from his colleagues, and lists of symposium attendees. Notices of praise for the chemist from an international assortment of universities and research institutions are reprinted, some in color. Marbled endpapers. Well-illustrated with black-and-white photographs and facsimiles of Berthelot's notes. A few subtle scratches/marks on the covers; slipcover shows much wear, rubbing. Magnificent production.
