The Mysteries of the Atom by H. A. Wilson, M.A., M.Sc., F.R.S. Professor of Physics, Rice Institute. Fellow of the American Philosophical Society, formerly Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge.
Once the whole material universe was believed to be made up of particles that moved in accordance with definite laws, but during the twentieth century the whole classical concept collapsed, being replaced with a series of new ideas and theories.
In this book the writer has tried to give a plain account of the rise of these new ideas and of the new facts without entering into technical details.
Includes preface, contents, appendices, and index.
Hardcover, missing dust jacket. Some foxing on edges, spine worn and faded with foxing. Inside is clean and in good condition. Some pencil marks on inside page.
