About this work
Notes of lectures on chemistry taken when Clermont-Tonnerre was a student, plus three short pieces on chemistry.
The Duc de Clermont-Tonnerre, as he became in 1815, served under Napoleon after attending courses at the Polytechnique. He was head of the Ministère de la Marine from 1821 to 1824, and then of the Ministère de la Guerre until 1828. He retired from public life in 1830, after Louis Philippe had become King of France.
