Jean Perrin was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1926 for "for his work on the discontinuous structure of matter, and especially for his discovery of sedimentation equilibrium." This book collects a large portion of his works.

See DSB (Vol X: pp 524-6) for more information on Perrin, who is perhaps best known for experimentally confirming Einstein's theory explaining Brownian motion.
