    Hand- und Hilfsbuch zur Ausführung physiko-chemischer Messungen by Drucker, C. ; Ostwald, Luther

    New York: Dover, 1943. First American Edition. Cloth. Very Good. First American Edition. xxiv, 986 pages. Publisher's original blue cloth. Shelf-leaned. No dj. Text in German. The funfte, neubearbeitete Auflage (fifth, revised edition). Cloth. A standard text for physico-chemical measurements that went through many editions, greatly expanded in the fourth and now the fifth editions. It is interesting to note that at this time German was a normally read language in engineering., less so today. The copy of scientist Henry Linschitz, with his signature and "Los Alamos 1945" on the front flyleaf. Linschitz was "A scientist who directed a team working on the Manhattan Project in Los Alamos, N.M., Henry Linschitz helped design and build the atomic bombs the United States dropped on Japan at the end of World War II, and then he dedicated himself to persuading people that nuclear war should never be repeated." (Boston Globe obit, Dec 2014). It is also inscribed on the flyleaf by Gerold Tenney, Edith S. Tenney, and Hester Babcock (xT-4) , with happy new year greetings January 1946. Gerold Tenney and Henry Linschitz were part of the Explosives Division at Los Alamos in the 1944-45 period. Gerold H. Tenney was Group X-1E Leader (Charge Inspection). Henry Linschitz was Group X-1B Leader (Terminal Observations). Edith Tenney was one of a group of women working at Los Alamos during this period - one reference has her listed as a nurse. Ms. Hester Babcock was issued a security badge at Los Alamos but a quick search turned up little more. The men involved with the Manhattan Project seemed to receive much more recognition for the work they did than the women or support staff, something that ought to be rectified in this writer's opinion.
