Seconda edizione, dopo quella di Halle del 1722, di una delle opere principali dell'autore. "This work contains the author's most important chemical works. Hoffmann opposed the iatrochemical views of Sylvius and Tachenius. He invented 'Hoffmann Anodyne' still in use the British Pharmacopeia. Hoffmann's experimental investigations were largely concerned with the examination of mineral waters and he did much towards perfecting the analytical methods of his time. He showed that sulphates are not the same as nitrates and that the base (or calx) from alum is different from that of chalk; hitherto such calxes were considered identical" Duveen, p. 298. Ferguson, I/p. 409 cita solo la presente edizione. Bolton, I/537. Friedrich Hoffmann 1660-1742, allievo di Cramer, fu uno dei maggiori chimici dei primi decenni del XVIII secolo; fu professore all'UniversitÓ di Halle appena istituita da Federioco III di Brandenburgo, e godette del favore di diverse corti principesche.
