Caption: Nicolas Lemery (1645-1715), French chemist and pharmacist. After studying as an apothecary at various universities, Lemery moved to Paris where he established a profitable pharmaceutical business selling patent medicines. He began giving lectures on chemistry which became popular with fashionable society and pharmaceutical students. Lemery discovered little new but was hugely influential as a teacher. His book Cours de Chymie (1675) ran to 31 editions by 1756 and was translated into several languages. It gave an account of the chemical methods and pharmaceutical compounds used at the time.
