Eine Neue Form Elektrischer Abstossung (Vol. 1 of Untersuchungen uber die Elektrische Entladung in Gasen)

Berlin: Julius Springer, 1880. First printing. Hardcover. 8vo, cloth backed patterned boards, very good, moderate rubbing to edges of boards, 2 x 3" loss to front pastedown, 197 pp, 6 lithograph plates. In the 1870s, Goldstein discovered and named cathode rays (Kathodenstrahlen). He was an early investigator of discharge tubes, the discoverer of anode rays or canal rays, later identified as positive ions in the gas phase including the hydrogen ion or proton. A very important work and very scarce in commerce or at auction. From what we can tell, no other volumes were published. Very Good. Item #H18528
