Most widely held works by Margaret Bryan
Conversations on chemistry : in which the elements of that science are familiarly explained and illustrated by experiments : to which are added, notes and observations by Marcet( Book )

8 editions published between 1818 and 1829 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jane Haldimand Marcet (1769-1858) was a pioneer in the field of education who wrote accessible introductory books and science and economics. Noting that women's education "is seldom calculated to prepare their minds for abstract ideas", she resolved to write books that would inform, entertain and improve a generation of female readers. First published anonymously in 1805, her two-volume Conversations on Chemistry swiftly became a standard primer, going through sixteen editions in England alone, and was cited by Michael Faraday as having greatly influenced him. Presented as a series of discussions between a fictional tutor, Mrs. Bryan, and her two female students, the flighty Caroline and earnest Emily, Conversations combines entertaining banter with a clear and concise explanation of scientific theories of the day. Volume 2, on "Compound Bodies", contains spirited exchanges on topics including "shells and chalk", borax, decomposing vegetables and "animal economy" which will interest historians of both science and education."--Back cover
