About this Item

The International Scientific Series, Vol. XLII. 193 x 135 mm. 8vo. 313, [ads] 4 pp. Index. Black- and gilt-stamped red cloth; lightly rubbed. Bookplate of Robert Washington Oates. Very good. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, first edition, New York, 1881. This work was translated into French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Russian. It was primarily an epistemological criticism of the corpuscular-kinetic theory of nature. In this work Stallo attempted to define the contemporary position of science, and, as a result, foreshadowed the contributions of Einstein and the new physics of the early twentieth century. Stallo's The concepts and theories of modern physics, the importance of which is explained in four columns in the DSB, was reprinted in 1960. Johann Bernhard Stallo was born in Sierhausen, Oldenburg, Germany. After an early education in Germany, he emigrated to the United States in 1839. He pursued a varied career in teaching and the law in the United States in Cincinnati and New York City. From 1884 to 1889 he was American ambassador in Florence, where he remained until his death, even after his official period of service had ended. DAB, XVII, pp. 496-497; DSB, XII, pp. 606-610.
