Chemistry and Chemical Technology in Ancient Mesopotamia., Martin Levey.
9 Chemistry and Chemical Technology in Ancient Mesopotamia. Martin Levey.
Elsevier. 1959 First Edition. Hardcover Very Good Good 
A very good 242 page hardback book without inscriptions or other marks. Virtually unworn, just the lightest rub to corners. DJ is quite heavily rubbed along top edge with a couple of short closed tears. Spine sunned. Map of Mesopotamia on endpapers; 16 chapters, appendices, index, 46 figures. Very heavily referenced - often well over 100 references at the end of each chapter. This historical survey of the origins of chemistry throws much light on the technical picture of the earliest literate civilization in its struggle to develop a chemical science from the time of the world's first and most important technical revolution (ca. 3500 B.C.) through a more or less culturally continuous path of evolution to the middle of the first millennium B.C. There are necessarily many breaks in the story, but a great mass of evidence has been accumulated about the early chemical technology of organic and in-organic materials. This traces its development in the accumulation of data and its purely empirical growth, which blossomed apart from the generally indigenous myth and magic of ancient Mesopotamian civilization. One of the standard references on early chemistry.

Electric Waves : Being Researches on the Propagation of Electric Action with Finite Velocity Through Space., Heinrich Hertz.
14 Electric Waves : Being Researches on the Propagation of Electric Action with Finite Velocity Through Space. Heinrich Hertz.
Macmillan 1900 B000XCY70A Second Edition Hard Cover Very Good No DJ 
A very good 278 page hardback book, ex Wigan & District Mining & Technical College Library, with usual stamps and labels. Second Edition, 1900 (first edition was 1894). Renewal sheet has never been stamped, but the book has been read since it has scattered light pencilling, mainly concentrated in chapter two. Paper on front hinge is split, though the cloth is sound. Text block nice and tight, edges a little dusty. Light rub to corners of cover.This is the book - the one book - which started it all. Without this, no radio, no television, no cellular telephones, no modern society as we know it. To hold this book - with a foreword by Kelvin, dedicated to Helmholtz, translated by Jones - is to hold the Twentieth Century in your hand. Pulling together the earlier work of Faraday & Maxwell, Henry, Helmholtz and the rest, and building upon all of this, Hertz presents us with a summary of progress in the understanding of the propagation of electromagnetic waves up to the end of the nineteenth century, and proves in practice the existence of waves which, previously, had existed only in the abstract form of Maxwell's mathematics. A "must" for any collector of the books which mark the milestones of human knowledge. ASIN B000XCY70A
