More than 150 original items are pictured and described, including books, manuscripts, periodicals, offprints, dissertations, and laboratory apparatus (such as that used by Marie Curie during her earliest work on radioactivity), providing a remarkable overview of the scientific contributions of this eminent group. Illustrated in color, duotone, and black and white.
