MOHR, the apothecary and chemist, is a name that will ever be associated with the foundation of the methods of volumetric analysis. Mohr as a controversialist in the domain of speculative geology is not so generally known, and Mohr as a pioneer in connection with the dynamical theory of heat and the doctrine of the conservation of energy is so little known that his writings have had to be rescued from oblivion by the author of the present pamphlet.
