    Sammanfattning

    It is now well established that the source of
    oxygen in photosynthesis is water. The earliest suggestion
    previously known to us had come from Rene´ Bernard
    Wurmser (1930). Here, we highlight an earlier report by
    Monsieur De Fourcroy (1787), who had already discussed
    the broad outlines of such a hypothesis in a book on
    Chemistry written for women. We present here a free
    translation of a passage from this book, with the original
    text in French as an Appendix.
