About this Item

Inscribed by Mayer Mayer, Julius Robert (1814-78). Naturwissenschaftliche Vortrage. 8vo. [8] 76pp. Stuttgart: J. G. Cotta, 1871. 232 x 147 mm. (uncut). Original wrappers, repaired, preserved in a cloth box. Fore-edges a little frayed, faint browning, but very good. Author's presentation inscription on inside front wrapper: "Herrn Professor Arnold zum Ziechen der Hochachtung gewidmet vom Verfasser." First Edition. Mayer is recognized as one of the founders of the principle of the conservation of energy--the first law of thermodynamics, and one of the core principles in physics. His major scientific papers were collected in Die Mechanik der Warme (1867); the present work contains four essays on physics and physiology that were later included in the expanded second edition (1874) of Die Mechanik der Warme. The publishers issued this separate pamphlet for the benefit of owners of the first edition, who could thus update their copies without purchasing the second edition. The first of the four essays in this bookdeals with Mayer's theory of heat, the second is on earthquakes, the third discusses the significance of unalterable dimensions, and the fourth is on nutrition--a topic of great interest to Mayer, who was trained as a physician and arrived at the principle of energy conservation through physiological considerations.
