Description:
1874. Kronecker, Leopold (1823-91). (1) Uber Schaaren von quadratischen und bilinearen Formen. Offprint from Monatsbericht der K. Akad. Wissensch. Berlin (Jan.-Mar. 1874). 55, [1]pp. (2) Uber die congruenten Transformationen der bilinearen Formen. Offprint from ibid. (April 1874). 53, [1]pp. Together 2 offprints, 8vo. 226 x 137 mm. Original tan printed wrappers, a little dust-soiled. Light toning, but very good. First Separate Editions. Kronecker was part of a formidable group of Berlin mathematicians whose members also included Kummer, Borchardt and Weierstrass. "Kronecker's greatest mathematical achievements lie in his efforts to unify arithmetic, algebra, and analysis, and most particularly in his work on elliptical functions. His boundary formulas are particularly noteworthy in this regard, since they laid bare the deepest relationships between arithmetic and elliptical functions and provided the basis for Erich Hecke's later analytic-arithmetical investigations. Kronecker also introduced a… Read More

1879. Freud, Sigmund (1856-1939). Uber Spinalganglien und Ruckenmark des Petromyzon. In Sitzb. der k. Akad. d. Wissenschaften, 3 Abth., 78 (1879): 81-167. 4 plates by F. Schima after Freud. Whole volume, 8vo. v, [1], 289pp. Plates. 244 x 156 mm. (uncut & unopened). Original printed wrappers. Slight foxing but fine. First Edition. Freud's third paper published as a medical student continued his research on the large Reissner cells in the spinal cord of the fish Petromyzon, which he had undertaken at the direction of the eminent physiologist Ernst Brucke, under whom he was studying. Freud determined these cells to be "nothing else than spinal ganglion cells which, in these low vertebrates. . . remain within the spinal cord." Freud was aided in this research by his improved methods of tissue preparation: "By the use of a gold maceration technique it was possible to make a complete survey of the spinal ganglia of Petromyzon" (Freud, Standard Edition III, p. 229). Freud made a major contribution to… Read More

First edition of an important paper on a discovery immediately preceding the unexpected achievement of uranium fission. "By co-precipitating with barium a solution of the product of the bombardment of uranium with neutrons, O. Hahn and F. Strassmann obtains what thwy thought were isotopes of radium, and after B-ray decay, products of these were precipitated with lanthanum, and hence regarded as actinium isotopes" (Partington, History of Chemistry, IV, p. 966).

Text-illust. (214 x 140 mm.) Laid-in item: notecard with penciled notes, probably in the hand of Lord Rayleigh. Red cloth, gilt spine. Frontis, portrait of P. Curie (d. 1906).

Small cut on spine, starting approximately two inches from the head, and is about three inches in length -very thin-, otherwise Very Good. First Edition, Whole Volume. In his landmark 1905 paper on special relativity, Einstein used the velocity-dependent concepts of transverse and longitudinal mass for the moving electron (these terms have now been replaced with the concept of relativistic mass, first defined by Lewis and Tolman in 1909). In the present paper Einstein proposed an experimental method for determining the ratio of the transverse to the… Read More

(unopened and uncut). Original orange printed wrappers. Fine. The Haskell F. Norman copy. First Edition in German. With his pure line theory, Johannsen proved experimentally that Galton's law of regression to the mean applied only for offspring produced by self-fertilization from a single parent plant, as in peas, beans and other self-fertilizers. Johannsen called the offspring and descendants of such a plant a "pure line," as he believed them to be genetically identical to the parent; therefore, any variation in the offspring of a pure line must be due to non-heritable factors such as environmental change. Johannsen's work provided important experimental evidence for de Vries's mutation theory, as Darwininan selection could not apply in a pure line whose fluctuations were caused only by non-heritable factors.… Read More

Some discoloration from acidic wrappers, but very good. First Edition, Offprint Issue. Pflüger, a pupil of Müller and du Bois-Reymond, made important contributions to our knowledge of the physiology of respiration. "The most effective work of Pflüger and his pupils is the proof that the essential seat of respiration is not in the blood, but in the tissues. This was accomplished in his important memoirs on the gasometry of the blood (1866), on the cause of dyspnea, apnea, and the mechanism of respiration (1868), on the origin and rational of the oxidative processes in the animal organism (1872), and on the heat production and oxidation of living matter (1878)" (Garrison, History of Medicine, p. 607).… Read More

Ueber die thermodynamische Theorie der Potentialdifferenz zwischen Metallen und vollstandig dissociierten Losungen ihrer Salze und uber eine elektrische Methode zur Erforschung der Molecularkrafte.

Lenard's paper on the photoelectric effect contains a crucial discovery: "as the intensity of the light increases the number of electrons set free rises, but their velocity remains unaffected: the velocity depends solely on wavelength" (DSB). This observation became an integral part of Einstein's hypothesis of light quanta, published in the Annalen der Physique in 1905; see Pais, pp. 380-81.
