    SOUBEIRAN, Eugène (1793-1858). "Recherches sur quelques combinaisons du chlore", in: Annales de chymie et de physique, volume XLVIII, October 1831, pp.113-57. Paris and Brussels, [1832]. 8° (213 x 136mm). Original yellow printed wrappers, uncut, in a quarter sheep box.

    FIRST EDITION. Along with Liebig and Guthrie, Soubeiran also invented chloroform. It is impossible to assign precedence to any of them as each may have allowed a certain amount of time between discovery and publication. Fulton and Stanton p. 72; Garrison-Morton 1851; Gedeon p. 194.
