Cambridge, Massachusetts: Physical Laboratories of Harvard University January 1932. First Edition. 47 pages of text and photographs about the laboratories, followed by 40 reprints of papers by scientists working in those laboratories (each with various paginations). 6 3/4 by 9 3/4 inches. 3/4 leather over cloth boards (publisher's annual volume). Red speckled page edges. Boards slightly bowed outward. Otherwise an excellent copy. Near Fine. Boards. [27706]


Collects 40 papers published by Harvard scientists in peer reviewed journals during the year. This volume contains seven papers by P. W. Bridgman, including some of his high pressure work from Proc. Am Acad., Physical Review, and American Mathematical Society. The papers appear to be offprints. Given the different paper stocks the papers were either separate offprints bound and trimmed to volume size at Harvard University Press or reprinted onto larger paper stock with the addition of the introductory material. Individual wrappers, if any, were not bound in.

Previously this serial was called "Contributions from the Jefferson Physical Laboratory and from the Cruft High-Tension Electrical Laboratory of Harvard University", and ran for 20 volumes.

"The Nobel Prize in Physics 1946 was awarded to Percy Williams Bridgman "for the invention of an apparatus to produce extremely high pressures, and for the discoveries he made therewith in the field of high pressure physics." (nobel site)

Price: $95.00
