Heidelberg:: C. F. Winter, 1845., 1845. 12mo. xii, 342,  pp. Publisher ads; occasional foxing. Original brown blind- and gilt-stamped cloth; spine reinforced with kozo. Very good. Second impression of the author's famous "familiar letters", first issued in 1844. Liebig is known for some of the most interesting aphorisms in chemistry, including: "If you want to become a chemist, you will have to ruin your health. If you don't ruin your health studying, you won't accomplish anything these days in chemistry."; and "Only about seventy years ago was chemistry, like a grain of seed from a ripe fruit, separated from the other physical sciences. With Black, Cavendish and Priestley, its new era began. Medicine, pharmacy, and the useful arts, had prepared the soil upon which this seed was to germinate and to flourish." - DSB, VIII, p. 347.
