Booknews
The Vaughans' eighteenth-century notebooks provides a record of their research in alchemy. This edition features the translation on the page facing the original. An introduction covers the biographies of the authors, a discussion of their contribution to experimental philosophy, an introduction to the text, and a critical look at Rebecca Vaughan's role as a research partner and an idealized muse. Rebecca Vaughan was the first woman to work as a chemical alchemist. Her husband, Thomas, was prominent in the field and wrote extensively. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
