L'Alambic: l'Art de la Distillation - Alcools, Parfums, Médecines, written by Matthieu Frécon  is beautifully illustrated by Cécilia Chauvet. The first part is a sketch of the history of distillation from the earliest times through to the 19th century. The second part deals with the history and various techniques for the distillation of alcoholic spirits. The third section deals with the distillation of essences, perfumes and essential oils and has a chapter on alchemy, spagyrics, homeopathy, floral elixirs, and aromatherapy. It is illustrated with old photographs of craft and commercial stills, engravings and drawings from books and manuscripts and some delightful drawings and humorous cartoons by Cécilia Chauvet.
