London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, Volume IV, Fifth Series, July-December 1877. Very nice copy, half-calf with raised bands and tips. 3 plates, vii, 476pp. Very Good condition. $350 This volume has interesting contributions by Goldstein, Clausius, Preston, Muir, Wiedemann, and others:
Eugen Goldstein, "On Electric Discharges through Rarified Gases", pp 353-363, (the translation into English of his paper from May 1876 "Vorläufige Mittheilungen über elektrische Entladungen in verdünnten Gasen"); and with Reitlinger and von Urbanitzki, "On Some remarkable Phenomena in Geissler Tubes", which is a short note on page 240, which Golstein uses in his research and references in this article. It seems to me that what he is discussing is the Cathode Ray ("kathodenstrahlen"), which he names in 1876 (and which had been known since 1869 [Parkinson, Breakthroughs] though it seems as though he does not use the term here. ("Eugen Goldstein was an early investigator of discharge tubes, the discoverer of anode rays, and is sometimes credited with the discovery of the proton....In the 1870s Goldstein undertook his own investigations of discharge tubes, and named the light emissions studied by others Kathodenstrahlen, or cathode rays. He discovered several important properties of cathode rays, which contributed to their later identification as the first subatomic particle, the electron..."--Wiki.
