        Kapillarchemie: Eine Darstellung Der Chemie Der Kolloide Und Verwandter Gebiete. Dritte Durchgesehene Und Erweiterte Auflage (Corrected Third Printing, Signed By Irving Langmuir)

      Leipzig: Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft, 1923. 3rd Edition 1st Printing. Green Cloth. Very Good. 157 Figures in Text. Xvi, 1225 Pp. Green Cloth Stamped In Black. Book Is Clean, Black Lettering Strong, Front Hinge Lightly Cracked At Front Endpapers, Completely Cracked Before Title Page. Ownership Signature Of Chemist Irving Langmuir On Front Endpaper, Dated Mar 23 1925 In Schenectady. Irving Langmuir (1881 - 1957) Was An American Chemist And Physicist. His Most Famous Publication Is The 1919 Article "The Arrangement Of Electrons In Atoms And Molecules" In Which, Building On Gilbert N. Lewis's Cubical Atom Theory And Walther Kossel's Chemical Bonding Theory, He Outlined His "Concentric Theory Of Atomic Structure". While At General Electric From 1909 To 1950, Langmuir Advanced Several Fields Of Physics And Chemistry, Invented The Gas-Filled Incandescent Lamp And The Hydrogen Welding Technique. Langmuir And Tonks Discovered Electron Density Waves In Plasmas That Are Now Known As Langmuir Waves. He Introduced The Concept Of Electron Temperature And In 1924 Invented The Diagnostic Method For Measuring Both Temperature And Density With An Electrostatic Probe, Now Called A Langmuir Probe And Commonly Used In Plasma Physics. Following World War I Langmuir Contributed To Atomic Theory And The Understanding Of Atomic Structure By Defining The Modern Concept Of Valence Shells And Isotopes. Langmuir Was Awarded The 1932 Nobel Prize In Chemistry For His Work In Surface Chemistry. The Langmuir Laboratory For Atmospheric Research Near Socorro, New Mexico, Was Named In His Honor, As Was The American Chemical Society Journal For Surface Science Called Langmuir. The Langmuir Adsorption Model Explains Adsorption By Assuming An Adsorbate Behaves As An Ideal Gas At Isothermal Conditions. The Freundlich Isotherm Has Two Parameters While Langmuir's Equations Has Only One: As A Result, It Often Fits The Data On Rough Surfaces Better Than The Langmuir's Equations.

His account of the history of six English manor houses is accompanied by his 12 mounted colour plates with captioned tissue guards and many tinted text drawings.

        Peaks & Passes from Dauphiné to Mont Blanc

      1923 - Summer 1923.Photograph album, with 12 leaves. 109 original mounted photographs (various sizes), all with descriptive titles written in ink beneath on white mounts, or framed & titled beneath directly onto album pages in white pen, with one printed card (77 by 51mm approx) & manuscript chart of climbs (53 by 72mm). Oblong 4to. Original boards. [French Alps], The album includes several stunning mountain views, taken during various ascents, along with some fascinating images illustrating the life of the local people on the slopes below, prior to the arrival of the skiing industry. In addition, there are ten photographs of the intrepid mountaineers in their sturdy tweeds, roped to their companions, as they make their way up the mountains, across seracs, and over glaciers. Whilst the images taken at Chamonix certainly show considerable change during the last century, it is those taken arround the villages of Tignes, Val d'Isère and Courmayeur, which demonstrate most clearly the great changes which have taken place over the last seventy years. Accompanied by the first sheet of a letter on copy paper: ?I have just come from a lantern lecture by Miss Woolley. Did you know that she & her sister have climbed Mont Blanc this summer? She took a large number of photographs, & made her own slides from them - so I am very proud of her.? [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        BOLTON WANDERERS V WEST HAM UNITED 1923 (F.A. CUP FINAL) FOOTBALL PROGRAMME

      1923 - Official programme for the 1923 FA Cup Final between Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United, played at Wembley. This was the first FA Cup Final to be held at Wembley Stadium and became known as the famous "White Horse Final", when the vast crowd spilled onto the pitch and were pushed back by a policeman riding a white horse. Staples are a little rusty, but otherwise very good. One of the very best copies that we have seen.
