I'm sorry I don't have a good reply for you. Unfortunately, J. R. R. Partington's A Short History of Chemistry
is not available as an ebook (nor is his definitive multivolume set). The paperback is widely available used. It is accurate and thorough but if you were looking for flair or something about the curious characters of the scientists involved, you should probably look elsewhere.
