Sir Isaac Brock and was present at the capture of Ft. Detroit and at the battle at Queenston, where Brock lost his life. From late 1812 until the end of the war in 1815, Robinson was the acting attorney general of Upper Canada, and for much of this period he was the only crown officer in the province. Though often given to defending the status quo in political and social matters, Robinson acted in most cases with logic and common sense. A man of presence and of marked ability, he served the people of the colony ably for many years. He died at his home, Beverley House, in Toronto on Jan. 31, 1863. quoted from Your Dictionary BiographySir John Jervis was a Law Reformer, Author and Statesman.

        Manuscript - Swiss Apothecary Recipe Journal - Opium as a Sedative

      Switzerland, 1856. Nineteenth Century Medicine Opium as a Sedative 1856 Geneva, 1856 Manuscript journal of apothecary recipes, several to a page, with ownership signature of Swiss pharmacist G. Haldenwang. Text is mostly in French with some Latin. 8vo. 140 pages, plus alphabetical index. Half green leather over brown continental boards, leafs watermarked "O. Berne" by a Swiss papermaker. Placed within the volume is an additional string-tied set of 52 manuscript recipes in French, seven leafs or cuttings with miscellaneous recipe notes (one of which is an ANS), and 2 printed recipes in German. Slight wear to extremities, mild foxing, otherwise very good condition, a comprehensive work in a neat hand. A nineteenth century pharmacist's eclectic compilation of recipes, innumerable natural remedy treatments for human ailments, the lot comprising a vast list of plants from around the globe, and some minerals, this extensive work is a fine representation of nineteenth century medicine, dealing specifically with pharmaceutical interest. The pharmacist names some important contemporary physicians and chemists, and includes the occasional digressive material such as how to make fireworks of various colours, a fragrant liqueur, vinegar, soaps and other bathing solutions. One of the recipes is penned on the verso of a postcard invitation addressed to Mr. Haldenwang, and dated 1892, suggesting that he was a practicing pharmacist for at least 35 years. The string-tied leaflet contains a recipe for the opium based "Liquor sedativus Battley". [Popular at the time, Battley's Sedative Solution was a patented, mixture containing opium sherry, alcohol, calcium hydrate, and distilled water. By the 19th century, laudanum (a tincture of opium) was used in many patent medicines to relieve pain, induce sleep, and relieve irritation. Opium derivatives were among the most effective of the limited available treatments, and as such was widely prescribed for anything from the common cold to meningitis to cardiac disease, in both adults and children. Laudanum was used in home remedies and prescriptions, as well as a single medication. It was used during the yellow fever epidemic.] Too many to list, the following are samples from the volume's contents: Dragée de copahu [Copahu gets its name from the Tupi language, spoken in Brazil. It is obtained from the copahu tree, a resinous tree native to South America and West Africa. Copahu balm is a resinous oil obtained by making incisions in the tree. Amazonian Indians used it as a poultice for its therapeutic, healing effects.] Eau sédative de Raspail [François-Vincent Raspail, (1794-1878) was a French chemist, naturalist, physician, socialist politician, and one of the founders of the cell theory in biology.] Siniment. edontalgie. Dr. Pugnet [Jean Pugnet (1765-1846) was a philanthropic military physician from Biel/Bienne, whom was sent by Napoleon Bonaparte to the West Indies to study yellow fever] Syrup amygdal [The amygdalae are considered part of the limbic system, and perform a primary role in the processing of memory, decision-making, and emotional reactions] Solution pour bains de Barèges artificiels [a bathing solution intended to emulate the natural sulphurous waters of the Pyrènées mountains] Syrup capillor veneris [From a fern plant used medicinally by Native Americans for rheumatism, certain insect stings, and insanity] Tabul. Santonin [An anthelminthic, a drug which was widely used to expel parasitic worms from the body] Formules de Dr. Lambossy à Nyon [Dr. J. M. Lambossy was a physician in Nyon near Geneva, who wrote a work on leg ulcers and varices] Aqua antihysteric Aqua vitae gallic Aqua coloniensis Balsam Tioravens Cold-Cream Chocolade a lich. islandic Gelatin lichen Huile pour l'atrophie - Dr. Wispard Sacea Sigillaria Siniment. stromal Glanz-firnis (gloss varnish) Pillul. Dzondi [Karl Heinrich Dzondi (1770-1835) was a German physician] Paraguay roux China pomade Coeruleamentum Syrup Mesembryanthemum crystallinum Bleichsuchtpulver (Chlorosis powder) Limonade purgative Liqueur Aromatique - Rassart Siminent. arthritic Solution de nitrate ou magnésie (Pharmacie W-Jo. à Neufchâtel) Feux de Bengale [Fireworks of various colours] One of the German printed recipes is titled "Recept zur Selbstbewertung eines guten Nusswassers und Quittenliqueurs" [Recipe for a good home-made nut water and quince liqueur]. The early 19th century was a turning point in the knowledge and use of medicinal plants. Marking the beginning of scientific pharmacy alkaloids were discovered and isolated from poppy (1806), ipecacuanha (1817), strychnos (1817), quinine (1820), pomegranate (1878), and other plants, followed by the isolation of glycosides. With the upgrading of the chemical methods, other active substances from medicinal plants were also discovered such as tannins, saponosides, etheric oils, vitamins, hormones, and so forth. By the mid-19th century the majority of medicinal treatments took the form of produced powders, tonics, teas, poultices, syrups, and washes made primarily from plant extracts. Common beliefs in this period maintained that removing symptoms would remove the disease, and that the body needed to be "cleansed" for certain treatments, thus by inducing vomiting, practicing bloodletting, and so forth. Historically, an apothecary was a medical professional who formulated and dispensed materia medica to physicians, surgeons and patients. Many recipes included herbs, minerals, and pieces of animals (meats, fats, skins) that were ingested, rubbed on the body, or used as aromatherapy. In addition to pharmacy responsibilities, the apothecary offered general medical advice and a range of services that are now performed solely by other specialist practitioners, such as surgery and midwifery. Apothecaries often operated through a retail shop which, in addition to ingredients for medicines, sold tobacco and patent medicines. By the 18th century, the medicinal properties of opium and laudanum were well known. Several physicians, including John Jones, John Brown, and George Young, the latter of whom published a comprehensive medical text entitled Treatise on Opium extolled the virtues of laudanum and recommended the drug for practically every ailment. "Opium, and after 1820, morphine, was mixed with everything imaginable: mercury, hashish, cayenne pepper, ether, chloroform, belladonna, whiskey, wine and brandy." By the 19th century, laudanum (a tincture of opium) was used in many patent medicines to relieve pain, induce sleep, and relieve irritation. Opium derivatives were among the most effective of the limited available treatments, and as such was widely prescribed for anything from the common cold to meningitis to cardiac disease, in both adults and children. Laudanum was used in home remedies and prescriptions, as well as a single medication. It was used during the yellow fever epidemic. Toward the middle 20th century, the use of opiates was generally limited to the treatment of pain, and opium was no longer a medically accepted "cure-all". . Very Good.

        4 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Innsbruck bzw. ohne Ort, 1856-1865 bzw. o. J.. Zus. 6 S., Kl.-8° bis 4°.. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - "Der im böhmischen Reichenberg geborene Heinrich Hlasiwetz erlernte die Pharmazie, studierte darauf an den Universitäten Jena, Wien und Prag, wurde 1849 Assistent Friedrich Rochleders, 1851 außerordentlicher und 1854 ordentlicher Professor der Chemie in Innsbruck. Hier errichtete er ein chemisches Laboratorium und wirkte mit großem Erfolg als Lehrer und Forscher. 1867 folgte er einem Ruf als Professor der chemischen Technologie an der Technischen Hochschule in Wien, und 1869 vertauschte er diese Lehrkanzel mit der für allgemeine Chemie. 1873 übernahm er das Referat für technische Hochschulen im Unterrichtsministerium. Hlasiwetz hat ungemein zahlreiche Untersuchungen, namentlich auf dem Gebiet der organischen Chemie, geliefert. Besonders bemerkenswert sind seine Arbeiten über Buchenteerkreosot, Harze, Gerbsäuren, Phloroglucin, über Alkaloide, Zuckerarten und Eiweißstoffe [..]" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Tlw. kl. Knickspuren bzw. Randläsuren. Ein Brief m. kl. Randausriß (ohne Textverlust). -

        Recuerdos y Bellezas de España. Obra destinada a dar a conocer sus monumentos y antigüedades y vistas pintorescas en láminas dibujadas del natural y litografiadas por F. J. Parcerisa. Acompañadas de texto por P. Piferrer.

      Madrid, Imprenta de Repullés, 1839 1856 - Fol. (30 x 21, 2 cm.) 10 vols. magníficamente encuadernados en holandesa puntas de época, lomo con hierros y título en oro, cabeza y cortes dorados. Frontis y portadas en cromolitografía, numerosas litografías a toda plana, y capitulares cromolitografiadas. Ejemplares en perfecto estado, muy limpios. Francisco Javier Parcerisa, pintor y litógrafo, fue miembro de la Comisión Real de los Monumentos Históricos y Artísticos y miembro correspondiente de la Academia de Bellas Artes de Sant Jordi, de Barcelona. Concibió la idea de Recuerdos y Bellezas de España con la idea de compilar y editar una gran obra que recogiera las principales bellezas artísticas de los distintos rincones de España –monumentos, artes y antigüedades– en una serie de volúmenes, cubriendo cada uno de ellos una región distinta del país. Acompañada siempre de textos de los mejores literatos del momento. Parcerisa se inspiró en el francés Alexandre de Laborde, en el escocés David Roberts y otros dibujantes de la época. La envergadura de esta empresa ponía serios impedimentos a su realización. Pero su tenaz voluntad hizo realidad esta obra. Asociado en primer lugar con Piferrer y luego con José María Quadrado, Pí y Margall y Pedro de Madrazo, quienes se encargaron de la parte literaria, se inició este proyecto en el que Parcerisa se encargó de ejecutar la ilustración él mismo con ayuda de Vicente Urrabieta y Ramón Puiggarí y los litógrafos Isla, Molina y Andreas Léopold. Muchas de estas vistas de España fueron tomadas del natural, con una visión original y libre en el tratamiento de la luz y la perspectiva aérea. Se inició su publicación en 1839 ilustrada con 588 litografías. Mientras la obra fue creciendo, se fue publicando por entregas quincenales mediante suscripción. La obra sufrió diferentes carencias y vicisitudes. Parcerisa aceptó la ayuda ajena para terminar los últimos dos volúmenes y aun así le faltó el apoyo necesario, lo cual le hizo dejar el proyecto inconcluso. Cataluña (2 vols.), Aragón, Reino de Granada, Castilla la Nueva (2 vols.), Asturias y León, Córdoba, Sevilla y Cádiz, Mallorca. Ejemplar excepcional, muy bien encuadernado, muy limpio. Se publicaron dos volúmenes más, los correspondientes a la entonces denominada Castilla La Vieja, que no están presentes. Palau, 252871 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [New Testament in High Wenli]

      Canton: London Missionary Society,, 1856. Delegates version. Octavo (225 x 134 mm). Original stitched dark buff wrappers. Housed in a cream phase box. From the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion. A few light creases and small nicks to the darkened wrappers, margins of text block toned. An excellent copy. An early printing of the Delegates' version of the New Testament in High Wenli, the first edition of which was published in Shanghai in 1852. Referred to as the Delegates' version due to the cooperative approach to the translation work: several missions were involved, and each would appoint a delegate to join a general committee of revision to vote on the final text. This particular version was undertaken by W. H. Mehurst (London Missionary Society), W. J. Boone (American Episcopal Mission), W. M. Lowrie (American Presbyterian Mission), John Stronach (London Mission Society), E. C. Bridgman (American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions), as well as several Chinese scholars, including Wang Tao. The Delegates' version of the Bible was the principal translation throughout the latter half of the 19th century, before it was displaced by the Union Mandarin version published in 1919.

CONTENTS: (Original printed document by the Queen's Printer) 'Resolutions to be moved in the Committee of the Whole by the Hon. Mr. Attorney General Macdonald on Wednesday the 7th of May 1856' (Judiciary system of Canada West legislation) CONDITION NOTES FOR DOCUMENT CONTENTS: some separation along the folds. Writing Docketing appears to be by Stratford County Court clerk's office at time of receipt. 18 days later on May 24 1856, John A MacDonald became the most powerful politician in Canada for the first time. On that date he assumed the leadership of the conservatives and the position as joint premier of Canada.In 1856 as the member of Parliament for Kingston and Attorney General for Canada West, John A MacDonald rose for the first time to the most powerful position in Canadian politics replacing Allan McNab on May 24 as the Canada West joint Premier of the Province of Canada. (The Province of Canada was made up of what is today Ontario and Quebec) MacDonald's rise to leader followed heated debates and disagreements during April and May including within his own party's coalition. One of the notable disagreements in those months was regarding the frequent moving of the Legislature among cities. The assembly was deadlocked in disagreement for choosing a future location for the capital. It was at McDonald's urging, a new procedure that involved asking Queen Victoria to choose, that lead to the permanent choice of Ottawa in 1857. The events of the winter-spring legislative session of 1856 at Toronto were the beginning of Macdonald's permanent position as head of the conservatives. No doubt the course was now set for Canada's formation as an independent country under the dominant influence of Canada's foremost Father of Confederation.Sir John A MacDonald was the first Prime Minister of the Dominion of Canada from 1867 to 1873 and 1878 to 1891. He was Attorney General of Canada West from 1854 to 1858, 1858 to 1862 and from 1864 to 1867.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      London, British Museum, 10. XII. 1856.. 2 S., 4°.. An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - Owen "wird nach Charles Darwin als zweitbedeutendster Naturforscher des Viktorianischen Zeitalters angesehen [...]. Er schrieb bedeutende Arbeiten zur vergleichenden Osteologie und Odontologie der Wirbeltiere. Während seiner Untersuchungen an in Großbritannien gefunden Reptilenfossilien prägte er 1841 den Begriff Dinosauria'. Im darauf folgenden Jahr revidierte er Georges Cuviers Gruppen der Wiederkäuer (Ruminantia) und der Dickhäuter (Pachydermata) und ersetzte diese durch die noch heute gebräuchlichen Untergruppen der Paarhufer (Artiodactyla) und Unpaarhufer (Perissodactyla). 1843 führte Owen den Begriff der Homologie ein und trennte ihn vom ähnlichen Begriff der Analogie. Unter Anwendung seines Homologie-Prinzips konstruierte Owen einen abstrakten Archetypus', anhand dessen er die Entwicklung der Wirbeltiere teleologisch erklärte. Während seines Wirkens als Superintendent der naturgeschichtlichen Sammlung des Britischen Museums setzte er sich für die Errichtung eines unabhängigen Naturgeschichtsmuseums, dem heutigen Natural History Museum, ein, dessen erster Direktor er bis 1883 war" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Ränder m. kl. Knickspuren. -

MACDONALD WAS ATTORNEY GENERAL OF CANADA WESTAuthentic original May 6 1856 cover and legal contents with signed initials and address in hand. Both sides of cover and initials with document contents inclosed. Stampless government official free rate, signed with JAMD AG initials in LL corner. (AG =Attorney General of Canada West) Addressed to: J Linton Esq , Clerk of the Peace, Stratford , CW. Postmarked: LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY CANADA MAY 6 1856 (located at Toronto) Pence issues period stampless cover with contents. Size of cover as is: 8 1/4" x 4 1/4" Laid blue paper.(reduced from a 9 1/2" x 4 1/4" original stationery envelope--similar in size to a modern no 10 envelope). Envelope is reduced by approximately 1 1/4" (32mm) at right where opened. 2 horizontal creases across the entire in lower portion. Several closed tears at top (incl 20mm to right of postmark, 15mm in center); Torn Back flap. Backstamped: Stratford MY 7 1856.The Legislative Assembly was located at Toronto, Canada West in the old Parliament of Upper Canada Buildings facing Front Street ,east of Simcoe St and west of John St. John A MacDonald's Attorney General's office was located in the old York Hospital building in the block Northwest of King St and John St where this document and or its contents would likely have originated (today's location of the Bell Lightbox film center and the Festival condominium tower). CONTENTS: (Original printed document by the Queen's Printer) 'Resolutions to be moved in the Committee of the Whole by the Hon. Mr. Attorney General Macdonald on Wednesday the 7th of May 1856' (Judiciary system of Canada West legislation) CONDITION NOTES FOR DOCUMENT CONTENTS: some separation along the folds. Writing Docketing appears to be by Stratford County Court clerk's office at time of receipt. 18 days later on May 24 1856, John A MacDonald became the most powerful politician in Canada for the first time. On that date he assumed the leadership of the conservatives and the position as joint premier of Canada.In 1856 as the member of Parliament for Kingston and Attorney General for Canada West, John A MacDonald rose for the first time to the most powerful position in Canadian politics replacing Allan McNab on May 24 as the Canada West joint Premier of the Province of Canada. (The Province of Canada was made up of what is today Ontario and Quebec) MacDonald's rise to leader followed heated debates and disagreements during April and May including within his own party's coalition. One of the notable disagreements in those months was regarding the frequent moving of the Legislature among cities. The assembly was deadlocked in disagreement for choosing a future location for the capital. It was at McDonald's urging, a new procedure that involved asking Queen Victoria to choose, that lead to the permanent choice of Ottawa in 1857. The events of the winter-spring legislative session of 1856 at Toronto were the beginning of Macdonald's permanent position as head of the conservatives. No doubt the course was now set for Canada's formation as an independent country under the dominant influence of Canada's foremost Father of Confederation.Sir John A MacDonald was the first Prime Minister of the Dominion of Canada from 1867 to 1873 and 1878 to 1891. He was Attorney General of Canada West from 1854 to 1858, 1858 to 1862 and from 1864 to 1867.

        Thèses présentées à la Faculté des Sciences de l'Université de Paris... Recherches sur les gaz ionisés...Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1902.

      First edition, the dedication copy, warmly inscribed to Nobel laureate J. J. Thomson (1856-1940), of Langevin's doctoral thesis. Langevin spent the year 1897-8 working with Thomson at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, during a period of high excitement when Thomson had just identified the electron and studies of the newly discovered X-rays and radioactivity were being carried out in his laboratory. The study of ionization in gases was then at the heart of physics, having led to the discovery of the electron and the elucidation of properties of X-rays, the state of the art being summarized in Thomson's classic book <i>Conduction of electricity through gases</i> (1903). Under Thomson's direction, Langevin worked on ionization by X-rays, in the process discovering, independently of Sagnac, that X-rays liberate secondary electrons from metals. Based on work carried out with Thomson, Langevin's thesis was completed on his return to Paris under the supervision of Pierre Curie. "The thesis, a notable one, ... dealt mainly with the recombination and mobilities of ions, their coefficients and the relations between them. It is a standard work on this subject. In it he also devised and applied new and elegant methods of measuring these quantities which were an advance on all their predecessors and have not since been improved upon to any appreciable extent" (<i>Nature</i>, Vol. 146 (1940), p. 750, recording the award of the Royal Society's Copley Medal to Langevin).<br/><br/> Langevin (1872-1946), France's leading practitioner and expositor of mathematical physics, studied under Jean Perrin and Pierre Curie; a close friend of both Curies, he was present at the birth of the study of radioactivity. Soon after completing his thesis, "Langevin entered the Collège de France to substitute for E. E. N. Mascart, whom he replaced in 1909... In his laboratory at the Collège de France, Langevin continued to study ions in gases, liquids, and dielectrics... In his dissertation he had already given a method of calculating the mobility of both positive and negative ions during their passage through a condenser by considering their diffusion and recombination" (DSB). <br/><br/> Langevin's first theoretical papers appeared in 1904 and 1905, and dealt with the concept of electromagnetic mass, its rate of increase with velocity, and the related contraction hypotheses which suggested the impossibility in principle of determining the earth's motion through the ether. He proposed, a year before Einstein, the famous mass-energy equivalence relation. Einstein once said that Langevin would have "developed the special theory of relativity if it hadn't been done elsewhere," and praised the "extraordinary vivacity and clarity" of Langevin's scientific thinking (quoted in Quinn, <i>Marie Curie</i>, p. 260). <br/><br/> In 1905 Langevin "published what was perhaps his most original and enduring contribution to physical theory, a quantitative account of paramagnetism and diamagnetism which demonstrated, he said, that it was "possible, using the electron hypothesis, to give precise meaning to the ideas [molecular models] of Ampère and Weber"" (DSB). <br/><br/> Langevin is also known for the "Langevin equation," a new approach to Brownian motion he developed in 1908. It has proved particularly useful in the study of the molecular fluctuations of numerous systems, including non-equilibrium thermodynamics. It is still used by biophysicists to study biological fluids which contain many particles in suspension. <br/><br/> In 1909, Langevin was appointed to the prestigious position of titular Professor at the "Collège de France". He participated actively in the Solvay Physics meetings from the first one in 1911, was elected as a member of its scientific committee in 1921 then as President in 1927, in succession to Lorentz. He was elected to the French Academy of Sciences in 1934. <br/><br/> Langevin's thesis was published by Gauthier-Villars, who published Marie Curie's thesis on radioactivity a year later.. 8vo, pp. [viii], 207, [1], diagrams in text. Full maroon morocco presentation binding, spine lettered in gilt, raised bands, a.e.g., silk endpapers, inner gilt dentelles. Cloth slipcase. Provenance: Sir Joseph John Thomson (gilt initials to f.f.e.p.; autograph presentation inscription on dedication leaf: "En souvenir de l'annee delicieuse que j'ai passe a Cambridge et de l'inoubliable hospitalite que j'y ai recu, j'offre au Professeur J. J. Thomson cette modeste contribution a l'oeuvre qu'il a, plus que tout autre, contribue a edifier. Bien affectueusement, P. Langevin")

        Victoria: with a Description of its Principal Cities... Victoria: with a Description of its Principal Cities, Melbourne and Geelong: and Remarks on the Present State of the Colony; including An Account of the Ballaarat Disturbances, and of the Death of Captain Wise, 40th Regiment

      London: Smith, Elder, and Co., 1856. Octavo, frontispiece and three other plates, a folding coloured map, and four vignette illustrations; a very good copy, complete with the advertisements, in recent full brown calf. A minor classic of the gold-rush era: written by Stoney as a companion to his Residence in Tasmania, this important and valuable addition to the sparse contemporary literature of Eureka is written from the military viewpoint and is, in that sense, unique. His understandably one-sided account of the Eureka affray attempts to justify the soldiers' less than glorious role. It is also one of the significant descriptions of gold-rush Victoria and its value extends well beyond the treatment of Eureka.
