The first and only edition of a textbook written by Charles Sylvester (1774–1828), an English chemist and civil engineer who specialized in the study of galvanization. The work contains a system of chemical symbolism which may be based upon the preceding work of Jean Henri Hassenfratz (1755-1827) and Pierre-Auguste Adet (1763-1834), A New System of Chymical Characters, Adapted to the Nomenclature (1787). Symbols and nomenclature for the elements then known, as well as over four hundred compounds, and tables of chemical decompositions are included. Digitized content is limited to the Tables of Symbols of Simple and Compound Bodies.
