About this Item

396 pages. Hardcover, no dustjacket. reading copy, with tears to leather book cover. BIOGRAPHY. Marie Sklidowska Curie (1867-1934) was the first woman scientist to win worldwide fame, and indeed, one of the great scientists of the twentieth century. Winner of two Nobel Prizes (for Physics in 1903 and for Chemistry in 1911), she performed pioneering studies with radium and contributed profoundly to the understanding of radioactivity. The history of her story-book marriage to Pierre Curies, of their refusal to patent their processes or otherwise profit from the commercial exploitation of raium, and her tragically ironic death from the very substance that made her famous is the stuff of legend. This biography was written by the daughter of this famous female European scientist. Includes an Index. Translated into English from the French by Vincent Sheean. "A great personality shines through these pages." - Lewis Gannett, New York Herald-Tribune (Key Words: Biography, Radium, Science, Madame Marie Curie, Eve Curie, Pierre Curie, Nobel Prize Winners, Curietherapy, Cancer, Uranium, Radioactivity, Vincent Sheean).
