Bibliography of X-Ray Literature and Research (1896–1897); being a Ready Reference Index to the Literature on the Subject of Röntgen or X-Rays

Nature volume 57, page 53 | Download Citation



THE work before us gives, in a handy and succinct form, a good deal of information respecting the literature of X-rays. The subject proper of the volume is prefaced by a brief historical retrospect, in which, however, the average worker in physics will find little but what is already known to him, and a short chapter of practical hints intended “to appeal more especially to physical students about to turn their attention to high vacua research.” The main and most valuable portion of the book is the bibliography, and this should certainly prove of utility to investigators in this branch of science. The volume, so far as we have been able to test it, appears to have been compiled with great care, and certainly a mass of useful knowledge is here gathered together in a form easy of reference.
