Reviews

“This biography of one of the most influential scientific journals in the nineteenth century welcomes the reader with a wealth of information and insights on French science, as one might expect given Maurice Crosland’s long-standing engagement with France. It complements and completes his earlier works on Gay-Lussac, the Society of Arcueil, and the French Academy of Sciences by offering a sketch of the landscape of French science. Despite the title, the book covers much more than the Annales; it is very much like a collective biography of French scientific literature and will serve as an invaluable guide for students of the history of French chemistry. It will certainly help them to possess beforehand a comparative overview of the textbook and journal literature of the period, as well as the knowledge that the Journal de Physique functioned largely as an oppositional journal to the Annales.”
