OF THESE IDEAS AND THEIR MODIFICATION

BY

CARL BENEDICKS

Formerly Professor of Physics at the University of Stockholm

TRANSLATED BY
J. HARDEN

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY
SIR OLIVER LODGE, F.R.S.

Stated on Copyright Page:

This Translation First Published in 1924

Published by: Methuen & Co. Ltd - LONDON

1924

[ FIRST EDITION & FIRST PRINTING ]

Carl Axel Fredrik Benedicks, born 27 May 1875 in Stockholm, and died in 1958. He was a Swedish metallograf and physicists of the family Benedicks.  He was half-brother to Gustaf Benedicks. 

He was during 1910 to 1922; Professor of Physics at the University of Stockholm. During 1920 to 1935; superintendent of The Metallographic Institute in Stockholm, for which he was the instigator. He carried out work in geology, mineralogy, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and mathematics.  He would be the first who demonstrated the ability of ultra-microscopic metal structures and their importance in theoretical and practical terms. He was also able to completely recreate natural meteoric iron. From 1916, he performed a series of studies in thermoelectricity.  In 1919, he became a member of the Academy of Engineering Sciences, and in 1922, became a member of the Society of Sciences in Uppsala and in 1924 became a member of the Academy of Sciences. [the year this book was published].

States on Inner Front prelim [of the dustjacket]:

Einstein has described this work as "a comprehensive and excellent text-book, to be warmly recommended to mathematicians and physicists interested in The Theory of Relativity." The Theory of Tensors is developed from first principles, thus enabling the physicist of average attainments to grasp all the mathematical details of Einstein's Theory.

Condition & Description of the book:

The original dustjacket houses this amazingly rare book. Priced on spine at 4/- NET to spine. Very minor [3mm] chips to top and bottom of spine and corners, [now repaired with colour like paper]. Spine has darkened in comparison the the front and rear panels.

Magnificently rare all the same!

  Boards are light green cloth with lettering to the spine and front board. These are in a very good condition. Spine colour has lightened. Clean, and tightly bound to inner page block.

There are 98 pages and these are all clean and tightly bound.

There are a few additional pages to the rear which list Methuen's books on Physics and Chemistry.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
