Abstract: This Ph.D. dissertation studies chemical treatises and textbooks employed in Spain from 1788 to 1845. This thesis provides an overview of a relevant topic in the last decades in history of science, the study of textbooks. Not only teachers and students participate but also many other actors, not only with purely pedagogical interests but also with diverse political and economic interests that can be known through the study of the manuals. The research has been organised in six chapters, dealing with the teaching of chemistry in Spain: major textbook authors, chemical terminology and vocabulary, textbook discussions on different substances, and chemical classification. It also includes an informative appendix with biographies and a list of treatises, handbooks, and textbooks. (Abstract provided by Ignacio Suay-Matallana.)
