- About this book
In 1787 Lavoisier and his colleagues wrote articles for the «Dictionnaire de l’Artillerie»; their manuscript is here published for the first time, from the different versions kept at the Archives of the Académie des Sciences. Dismissing a dogmatic statement of their own field, the 'régisseurs' preferred to write didactic articles for the general public. They presented a state of their experimental research in progress. Lavoisier himself was to write most of the articles dealing with Science.
