Recommended Follow Up: Lavoisier

I have received lots of interest in Marie Anne. I have yet to come across a good biography on her, but I can recommend you pick up these interesting books for your private bookshelf!

Women in Chemistry and Physics: A Biobibliographic Sourcebook

This book not only has great lives of great women within its covers, but also contains a nice profile on Marie Anne Pierrette, our red headed wife of Lavoisier.

The Last Sorcerers

I suggest this book because it is a fun read, I am saying this from a non-scientist point of view! It is written by way of story telling, and has a nice section dedicated to Lavoisier and Marie Anne!

For a thorough biography on Lavoisier my choice is Antoine Lavoisier (Cambridge Science Biographies)
