The original edition of Rayleigh and Ramsay's paper. Its publication was preceded in 1895 by that of a revised edition in the Philosophical Transactions. 2 leaves, 43 pp. Original cloth, folio. Library label on front cover. Small rectangular ink stamp on title page and next leaf. Bookplates on front pastedown and flyleaf. Else a Very Good copy. "A revised version, re-edited, with additional matter, was, with the consent of the Smithsonian Institution, published in the Philosophical Transactions" (from S. P. Langley's Introduction). Dibner, Heralds of Science 50 (citing the Philosophical Transactions version). "The discovery and isolation of argon was undoubtedly Rayleigh's most dramatic and famous accomplishment. It was largely because of this discovery that Rayleigh was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 1904, while Ramsay received the Nobel Prize in chemistry the same year" (D. S. B. 13: 102-3). See D. S. B. 11: 279, and Partington, History of Chemistry, IV: 916-7, for Ramsay's role in the discovery of argon. Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge (Hodgkins Fund) 1033.
