Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931) was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices in fields such as electric power generation, mass communication, sound recording, and motion pictures. These inventions, which include the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb, had a widespread impact on the modern industrialized world. He was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of organized science and teamwork to the process of invention, working with many researchers and employees. He established the first industrial research laboratory." -- Wikipedia

With several old institutional stamps on the title page and the Dibner Institute stamp on the front pastedown endpapers (properly withdrawn). Wear and bumping to the corners. Wear to head and tail of both spines. Binding sound with one signature a bit proud in volume 1. Both volumes are copyrighted 1884, but Vol. l (a gift of Bern Dibner) is the 7th edition dated 1888 and Vol. 2 (a gift of IBM) is the sixth edition dated 1885. Ad for Prescott’s latest works in back matter, including “Bell’s Electric Speaking Telephone.” Very Good. See Sterling and Shiers History of Telecommunications Technology, An Annotated Bibliography, **6-059 (which notes the 1877, 1881, and 1885 editions) . Wheeler Gift Catalogue, I, 2045 (referencing 1877 first edition) "Comprehensive, descriptive treatise," Cyclopaedia of American Biography V/108. A continuation of Prescott's well regarded "History, Theory, and Practice of the Electric Telegraph" (first published in 1860, and with several editions through 1866). "Electricity and the Electric Telegraph spends "the first 280 pages or so on electricity in general, while the rest focuses on the telegraph." It went through many editions, with 1877 being the first. George Bartlett Prescott was well positioned to write such a book. He was a manager of telegraph offices from 1847-1858, then Superintendent of the American and in 1866 of the Western Union telegraph companies' lines, and in 1869 electrician of the Western Union telegraph company. He was also electrician of the International Ocean Telegraph Company from 1873 to 1880, and later travelled overseas to review the technologies being used there. He later rose to executive and board positions in several companies including the Bell telephone company of Philadelphia. He also had several related patents, and wrote numerous articles for the technical press as well as several books." --- Kuenzig Books

Serious Questions: An ABC of Skeptical Reflections

By Erwin Chargaff

Boston: Birkhäuser, 1986. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. Fine/fine. A fine first edition, first printing in a fine dust jacket. As new. Dust jacket now protected in a clear, removable, archival cover. viii, 261 pp. Octavo, 5 3/4 x 8 1/2 inches tall. Erwin Chargaff (11 August 1905 – 20 June 2002) was an Austro-Hungarian biochemist that immigrated to the United States during the Nazi era and was a professor of biochemistry at Columbia University medical school. Through careful experimentation, Chargaff discovered two rules that helped lead to the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA. The first rule was that in DNA the number of guanine units is equal to the number of cytosine units, and the number of adenine units is equal to the number of thymine units. This hinted at the base pair makeup of DNA. The second rule was that the relative amounts of guanine, cytosine, adenine and thymine bases vary from one species to another. This hinted that DNA rather than protein could be the genetic material. -- wikipedia

Before joining the Cornell faculty in 1946, he taught at Harvard and the University of Wisconsin, and for three years was the historian for the Radiation Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In 1964, he was named Goldwin Smith Professor of the History of Science and in 1970 he became director of the Society for the Humanities at Cornell. Guerlac was awarded the George Sarton Medal by the History of Science Society in 1973, was named a Guggenheim Fellow in 1978, and in 1982 was named Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur by the French government. Guerlac's books include Science in Western Civilization, Newton on the Continent, and Lavoisier: The Crucial Year, for which he received the Pfizer Prize in 1959. At the time of his death Professor Guerlac was completing an annotated edition of Newton's Opticks, which was first published in 1704. --- Cornell University

There he helped to devise unusual forms of lithium deuteride and lithium tritide for use in the testing of thermonuclear devices. He joined the Berkeley faculty in 1955 and began his career teaching freshman chemistry and inorganic chemistry classes. During the 1950s and 1960s, he established courses, seminars and research programs in inorganic chemistry that have flourished to the present. Jolly wrote more than 300 articles in leading scientific journals and wrote or edited numerous books, including Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry, The Synthesis and Characterization of Inorganic Compounds and, in 1987, From Retorts to Lasers: The Story of Chemistry at Berkeley. -- author's obituary

Atmospheric Diagnostics of Stellar Evolution: Chemical Peculiarity, Mass Loss, and Explosion: Proceedings of the 108th Colloquium of the International Astronomical Union, Held at the University of Tokyo, Japan, 1-4 September 1987 [Lecture Notes in Physics 305]

By K. Nomoto, ed.

Berlin: Springer-Verlag, 1988. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. Near fine/none as issued. About fine, first edition, first printing. Brown, mustard and white cloth boards. Binding is sturdy, square and tight. Previous owner's name stamped neatly on top edge, otherwise as new. No dust jacket as issued. Illustrated with formulas, b/w photos, graphs, and drawings. xiv, 468 [2] pp. Octavo, 6 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches tall. This collection of papers describes the evolutionary path of stars of various masses. Observational data and theoretical modeling of the stellar atmosphere and the stellar interior and their interaction are presented, covering chemical peculiarities, mass loss, and explosion, all of which are strongly related to the hydrodynamic evolution of the interior. In particular the supernova SN 1987 A is discussed for the first time in detail, including the underground neutrino observations and the detection of X-rays from the supernova. The study of its progenitor, a B 3 supergiant, was related to the topics of chemical peculiarities and mass loss mechanisms and atmospheric models. The intended readers are professional astronomers and astrophysicists, as well as physicists. The book will also be an important source of information for graduate students. ---Publisher's web site Main sequence abundances: Observational aspects, Jun Jugaku; Main sequence abundances, mass loss and meridional circulation, Georges Michaud; Observed lithium abundances as a test of stellar internal structure, Sylvie Vauclair; On the distribution of the lithium abundance in normal late-type giants Liia Hänni; Abundances in cool evolved stars, Catherine A.
