        A New Modification of the Cloud Method of Determining the Elementary Electrical Charge and the Most Probable Value of that Charge.London: Taylor & Francis, 1910. First edition.

      Very rare offprint issue, from the library of Jean Becquerel, of Millikan's famous experiment in which he first provided the definitive proof that all electrical charges are exact multiples of a definite, fundamental value-the charge of the electron. Millikan's experiment is nowadays known as the 'oil-drop experiment' due to a later improvement by Millikan and his student Harvey Fletcher in 1910 - using oil in the cloud chamber - but it was in this paper (although water and alcohol were the liquids used) that Millikan first made precise measurements of the charge on single isolated droplets instead of as earlier just statistical averages on the surface of clouds of droplets.<br/><br/> Although important, the fundamental breakthrough in Millikan's work was not his measurement of the actual value of the electron's charge (in fact he was as close to the correct value in this paper dated October 1909 as he was in the later oil experiment of 1910), but the fact that Millikan was able to produce, isolate, and observe single droplets with electrical charges, and show that repeated measurements of the charges always revealed exact integral multiples of one fundamental unity value. Previous experiments by Thomson and Wilson had in fact revealed the same value of the electron's charge as Millikan's experiment did but their determinations were based on statistical averages on the surface of large clouds of numerous water droplets and repeated measurements on the clouds gave fractional values of the electron's charge. This fact implied to some antiatomistic Continental physicists that it was not the constant of a unique particle but a statistical average of diverse electrical energies. However, in this 1909 experiment Millikan showed that his single droplets could not hold a fractional charge of the electron's but always had a charge that was an exact integral multiple of the electron's (e.g., <i>2e, 3e, 4e, ...</i>). In 1910 Millikan and Fletcher improved and simplified the whole experiment by using oil, mercury, and glycerin as liquids instead of water; they could now observe the droplets for several hours instead of just under one minute and also neglect having to compensate for the evaporation of the water and alcohol droplets. And thus the experiment became known as the 'oil-drop experiment', but the crucial breakthrough had already taken place in this 1909 experiment. <br/><br/> In this paper Millikan emphasized that the very nature of his data refuted conclusively the minority of scientists who still held that electrons (and perhaps atoms too) were not necessarily fundamental, discrete particles. And he provided a value for the electronic charge which, when inserted in Niels Bohr's theoretical formula for the hydrogen spectrum, accurately gave the Rydberg constant-the first and most convincing proof of Bohr's quantum theory of the atom. <br/><br/> <i>'Among all physical constants there are two which will be universally admitted to be of predominant importance; the one is the velocity of light, which now appears in many of the fundamental equations of theoretical physics, and the other is the ultimate, or elementary, electrical charge, a knowledge of which makes possible a determination of the absolute values of all atomic and molecular weights, the absolute number of molecules in a given weight of any substance, the kinetic energy of agitation of any molecule at a given temperature, and a considerable number of other important physical quantities.'</i> (First paragraph of the offered paper). <br/><br/> In 1923 Millikan became the first American-born Nobel laureate for this work together with his1916 determination of Planck's constant on the basis of Einstein's theory of the photoelectric effect.. Offprint from the Philosophical Magazine for February 1910, 8vo (218 x 141 mm), original printed orange wrappers with the Becquerel library paper label to upper right corner, pp [209] 210-228.

A very good copy. A nice copy of a very imaginative and quite. uncommon book. (#107052). First edition. Faustian science fiction. A brilliant scientist's offer of marriage is rejected by the woman he loves because she fears the consequences of his possible success in discovering the secret of eternal life. The rebuffed scientist continues his experiments, discovers and synthesizes the essential fluids of the human brain, and constructs clockwork androids, using the brain fluid to give them artificial intelligence. But the androids have no souls and the double of the scientist's girl friend ("as perfect a companion, as a man ever had -- provided he wound her up") cannot love him. He destroys the androids and wins the hand of the human Rosamond. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Reginald (1979; 1992), or Day (1963). Smith, American Fiction, 1901-1925 M-658.

        THE NORTH POLE: With an introduction by Theodore Roosevelt. One hundred and sixteen illustrations from photographs.

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1910.. Limited Deluxe Edition of 500, signed by Peary and Bartlett, this copy is unnumbered; xii, 326 pages, illustrated, 116 illustrations from photographs, included 4 photogravures. All the photographs are tipped in throughout. Full velum bound,top edge of pages gilt,remainder of pages uncut. Original white covers, titled and ruled in gilt with gilt medallion to front and vignette of polar bear to spine and rear cover. Peary's account of his last expedition, in which he claimed to have reached the North Pole. 'The Pole at last!!! The prize of 3 centuries, my dream and ambition for 23 years. Mine at last' (Peary's diary quoted in Fleming, Ninety degrees north p. 363). This assertion, however, has remained subject to doubt as no one in the party on the final stage of the journey was sufficiently trained in navigation to confirm Peary's measurements, at times inaccurate. Also, the speeds which the expedition achieved in its final stages were about three times those made until then. This would only have been possible if no pressure ridges existed but Henson's description of tortured detours suggests otherwise. To Peary's irritation, he returned from the Arctic only to discover that Frederick Cook maintained that he had reached the North Pole the previous year. Frontipiece loosening, page 316 and the map are loose. Covers grubby, shelfware, bumped. Good
