Abstract
Physics, biology, geology, and chemistry all have had significant observational components in the course of their development. Chemistry projects the image of an experimental discipline par excellence. Its emergence depended so heavily on the use of scientific instruments that analytical chemistry was deemed "the mother of modern chemistry".1 While this paper stems from a long-term interest in the history of chemistry, its scope has been broadened beyond the confines of one discipline.
