Justus von Liebig


THIRTY-FIVE years have passed since Liebig died, and we are at length presented with a biography worthy of the man and his work. At the time of his death innumerable articles on his life and achievements appeared in the newspapers and periodical press of practically every country in the world, and almost every known scientific society having relations with chemistry made reference to his splendid services, and to the irreparable loss which humanity had suffered by his decease.

Justus von Liebig.

By Jacob Volhard. Band I., pp. xii+456. Band II., pp. viii+437. (Leipzig: J. A. Barth, 1909.) Price 24 marks.
