Most of the books I've seen mentioned are a bit limited in scope.  I 
have History of Chemistry by F. J. Moore, published in 1918.  There are 
some later editions.  I have found these books listed with used and rare 
book sellers on the internet.  Moore discusses many of the pioneers in 
chemistry going way back even to the "ancients."
