105 Carl Wilhelm Scheele was a less ambitious, more modest personality than most of these others. Perhaps the humility he described in his revealing letter to Lavoisier was not merely rethorical, or perhaps he felt thet his position was too weak to support a claim to credit that might well have been his due. Scheele had isolated oxygene - fire air in his term - as early as 1771 and had completely described its properties well before Lavoisier or anyone else, but he did not publish his Treatise on Fire and Air until 1777, and even then he made no claim to priority. By then, Lavoisier's claim had grown too strong. naukowcy
