A book with colouring formulae, with the sample showing the result of the formula

A chemical formulae book from the 19th century, with a colour swab resulting from applying the formula. With the discovery of chemical dyes in the mid-19th century, the price of printed materials dropped and they became accessible to all levels of society. The figure of the chemist reached a paramount importance in the factories after this time.
