Armorial bookplate in Vol. II. Very good. Scarce. FIRST EDITION. A standard biographical source for Faraday, by his friend and loyal admirer, Jones, himself an accomplished physician and chemist. "Henry Bence Jones (1814-1873) was Faraday's close friend, and, after his death, collected a large number of letters to and from Faraday, which together with excerpts from diaries, etc., were published as Life and letters of Faraday. . . (1870). This volume must be used with great caution, since the editor was not averse to correcting and amending Faraday's language." [DSB]. DSB, Vol. IV, p. 539; Mottelay p. 498.
