Undoubtedly Black’s house would have incorporated a library. Not a great deal is known about which books he owned, there being no book sale after his death. Some evidence can be gauged by knowing which volumes he borrowed from Edinburgh University Library (records survive) as he would not have removed books which he already owned. There are a few pieces of evidence in letters. Lavoisier sent him a bundle of books in 1790 and though these are not specified, it would be odd if this did not include the Traité Elémentaire de Chimie, published in the previous year.

Chapter 3 Who Was the Real Joseph Black? uk Today the reputation of Scottish chemist, Joseph Black (1728−1799), lies largely on his characterisation of ‘fixed air’ (carbon dioxide) and for his conceptualisation and measurement of latent heat.

Uk Today the reputation of Scottish chemist, Joseph Black (1728−1799), lies largely on his characterisation of ‘fixed air’ (carbon dioxide) and for his conceptualisation and measurement of latent heat. Yet the research involved to develop these ideas took him only fourteen years out of a career three times that length. It was complete by 1766, the year in which he took up the chemistry chair at Edinburgh University. This chapter looks beyond Black’s fundamental research activities and considers the contribution which he made to the developing industrialisation of Scotland, as well as considering his role as perhaps the most renowned chemistry teacher of his time.
