xxiv, 488; figs.; ads (32 pp; dated 2/85). Original cloth. Ex-library: old spine label, bookplate on pastedown, embossed stamp on title page. Signature of former owner on half-title. Else Very Good+. 'At Cambridge, between 1876 and 1888, Muir lead the research on bismuth compounds, resulting in 18 papers published by him alone or together with his students in the Journal of the Chemical Society. His coauthors were all young graduates, because there were no postgraduate students in chemistry at Cambridge then. He became better known as a writer than researcher though, through his numerous textbooks and history of chemistry treatises. The most successful textbook of Muir was his Principles of Chemistry, which he first published in 1884, and as a second edition in 1889' (Wikipedia). 'In 1884 the British chemist, M. M. Pattison Muir . . . published a textbook on theoretical chemistry entitled A Treatise on the Principles of Chemistry in which he attempted to summarize many of the recent results 'on the subjects of dissociation, chemical change and equilibrium, and the relations between chemical action and the distribution of the energy of the changing system' - in short, most of the topics which would, within the next ten years, come to become identified with the new and rising field of physical chemistry and the work of Ostwald, Arrhenius and van't Hoff. Though Muir himself did not succeed in establishing a British school of physical chemistry and did not make any significant experimental contributions to the new field, he did play a role in disseminating its early results through his review of Ostwald's work on the measurement of affinity coefficients, the writing of a monograph on thermochemistry, the editing of an influential dictionary of chemistry and, of course, through his textbook' (William B. Jensen, 'Whatever Happened to the Nascent State?', Bull. Hist. Chem., 1990, 6, 26-36). N° de ref. de la librería 21054
