Bel exemplaire. ********* First edition. "The tragic death of Pierre Curie at the age of forty-seven put an end to what was certainly one of the most famous scientific collaborations in history. Despite his abbreviated career and the fact that his work was sometimes overshadowed by that of his gifted wife (see No. 2261), Pierre Curie must be credited with a remarkable amount of original work of extreme importance in the understanding of radioactivity and atomic structure. He shared the 1903 Nobel prize in physics with his wife and Henri Becquerel (see No. 2142). This volume of collected writings includes works on magnetism, crystal symmetry, pyroelectric phenomena, and an account of the discovery of radium. The laudatory introduction by Marie Curie gives some interesting bits of family history."Heirs of Hippocrates No. 2223. ______ Format : In-8.
