Item Description: Gauthier-Villars, Paris, 1895. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION OF AN IMPORTANT PAPER IN WHICH THE FRENCH PHYSICIST JEAN PERRIN PROVES UNEQUIVOCALLY NOT JUST THAT CATHODE RAYS TRANSPORT CHARGE , BUT THAT "CATHODE RAYS CONSIST OF NEGATIVELY CHARGED MATTER MOVING WITH CONSIDERABLY VELOCITY" (Magee, Source Book in Physics, 580). In late 1895, "a young French graduate student J. Perrin confirmed the corpuscular nature of cathode rays. In order to settle the difference between the opposing views of Goldstein, Hertz, and Lenard on the one hand, and Crookes and Thomson on the other hand, [Perrin in this experiment] collected the cathode rays in a metal cups, which acted as a Faraday cyliner, just before they struck the glass wall, and found that they gave a negative charge, which he measured with an electroscope. To confirm his experiment, Perrin showed that if the cathode rays are deflected by a magnet no charge is detected by the electroscope. He was also successful in carrying out the same experiment for the rays travelling in the opposite sense, and showed that they carried a positive charge" (Authier, Early Days of X-ray Crystallography, 66). However "not everyone was convinced that this was not an incidental effect of the radiation that produced fluorescence in screens. J. J. Thomson wasn't so sure, and in 1897, he replicated Perrin's experiment using a modified tube, and adding an external magnet to deflect cathode rays. As Thomson interpreted his results, "the negative charge and the cathode rays must somehow be connected" (Prutchi, Exploring Quantum Physics). In other words, Thomson found that the electricity always followed the cathode rays. This result, then, was Thomson's first paper leading to his discovery of the electron and its properties. ALSO INCLUDED: the first edition of two papers in which the French astronomers Puiseux and Loewy detail the pioneering work that lead to their magnificent and landmark lunar atlas, 'the ultimate achievement of nineteenth-century astronomical photography" (The Photobook: A History, Vol. I, p. 54). CONDITION & DETAILS: Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1895, 4to. In Comptes Rendus Hebdomadaires des Seances de L'Academie des Sciences, 121. Entire volume.

First printing of Langevin's doctoral dissertation on X-rays and on the ionization of gases.Einstein wrote about Langevin : "Langevin’s scientific thought displayed an extraordinary clarity and vivacity combined with a quick and sure intuition for the essential point. Because of those qualities, his courses exerted a decisive influence on more than a generation of French theoretical physicists. It seems to me certain that he would have developed the special theory of relativity if that had not been done elsewhere, for he had clearly recognized its essential points.".

Item Description: P., Gauthier-Villars, 1897, 1897. Couverture rigide. Book Condition: Très bon. 1ère Édition. EDITION ORIGINALE DE LA THESE DE DOCTORAT ES SCIENCES PHYSIQUES PRESENTEE PAR Jean PERRIN A LA FACULTE DES SCIENCES DE PARIS ---- RARE ---- BEL EXEMPLAIRE ---- P., Gauthier-Villars, 1897, un volume in 8 relié en demi-maroquin rouge, couvertures conservées (reliure moderne), (restauration à la partie supérieure de la première page de couverture), 6pp., 63pp. ---- "Perrin's years as a student at the Ecole Normale were exceptionally formative, owing primarily to the influene of his teacher, Marcel Brillouin, who was an outspoken advocate of Boltzmann's"statistical mechanics" and an outspoken adversary of Ostwald's and Mach's "energetics". It is possible to detect Perrin's atomistic biases even in his first paper of 1895 in which he reported experiments demonstrating that cathode rays are negatively charged by collecting them in a "Faraday cup". In 1896 Perrin won the Joule Prize of the Royal Society for his experiments on cathods rays and for certain preliminary studies on Röntgen's recently discovered X rays ; this formed the basis for his doctoral thesis the following year".
