Highlights from other owners include a Rare and Important Inverted Metallurgic Microscope Camera, by Le Chatelier and Ph. Pellin, Paris. Henri Louis Le Chatelier (French, 1850-1936) was a chemist most famous for devising Le Chatelier’s principle, used by chemists to predict the effect a changing condition has on a system in chemical equilibrium. His name is also included as one of 72 French scientists, engineers etc. that are engraved on the Eiffel Tower in Paris in recognition of their contributions by Gustave Eiffel. The Chatelier process is still in use in metallurgy today.
