"The Art of Distillation" By John French. London, November 25, 1650. John French (circa 1616-1657) was an English physician who also served as an army doctor. "The Art of Distillation" is thought to be representative of the English chemistry of this period. John French was follower of Paracelsus school of alchemy/chemistry, which was skeptical of certain alchemical traditions yet dedicated to seeking medical uses for various chemicals and compounds. Note the frequent references to Paracelsus in this work. [6 Books]. 181 pages. (ARTDISTILLATION: .doc, .pdf) E
