 Here we explore one of the threads that contributed to Brownrigg’s broader claims about the nature of airs: the analysis of mineral waters


hidden in such waters. As a matter of fact it contributed to arrange more functional exploitation methods of water sources in the first half of the nineteenth century, to boost industrial production of artificial mineral waters and to find out all possible medical applications of the recently discovered
