Notes

First edition, presentation copy to James Prescott Joule, with the printed presentation on the half-title "From James Young and R. Angus Smith" continued by hand "to Dr Joule FRS &c&c". The book later passed to the Chemical Laboratory of the University of Cambridge and then into the library of Churchill College, Cambridge, with their marks. Graham (1805-1869) was one of the founders of colloid chemistry and made important contributions to the study of the diffusion of gasses. The present work is a collection of his writings, published posthumously for private presentation, as here. James Prescott Joule (1818-1889), one of the great scientists of the 19th century, formulated the principles behind the first law of thermodynamics, and gave his name to the eponymous unit of energy.
