Portraits berühmter Naturforscher

    Article metrics


    THE forty-eight portraits which, with short biographical sketches, make up this album, represent well-known men of science of the past and the present. With one or two exceptions, the plates are finely engraved from good portraits. Among our own countrymen in the collection are Darwin, Faraday, Sir William Herschel, Newton, Lord Kelvin (who is given his old and better-known name), and Tyndall.
