Bookplate of AG, Andras Gedeon, MD. Very good. RARE. FIRST EDITION. Two pioneering works from the developer of quantitative spectroscopy. "Karl von-Vierordt described in 1855 that with enough pressure, the arterial pulse could be obliterated. He also created the sphygmograph, a pulse recorder usable for routine non-invasive monitoring on humans." â" Roguin. "Karl Vierordt (1818-1884) invents new devices and techniques useful in addressing medical problems. In 1873 his double slit spectrometer allows quantitative spectroscopy for the first time. Three years later he uses this technique to determine the spectra of the blood, bile, and urine." [Gedeon]. On Die quantitative Spectralanalyse: "Vierordt's spectral analysis of haemo-globin, bile and urine were of great value. He studied the variations in the spectrum of oxyhaemoglobin produced by different dilutions of this substance and was able to estimate the haemoglobin content of blood." [Garrison & Morton]. Provenance: Ownership signature and date of Thomas Ewan on title of Die Anwendung des Spectralapparates. Ewan was a Scottish chemist best known for his short paper on "The Industrial Applications of Electro-Chemistry" (in: Nature, Vol. 58, Issue 1492, pp. 112-115, June 2nd, 1898) and his translation of Jacobus Henricus van't Hoff's, Studies in Chemical Dynamics (Amsterdam and London, 1896; 2nd ed. rev. and enl. by Ernst Cohen).
