DSB IV; Lowndes p. 778; Poggendorff p. 719. - THIRD EDITION, Revised. This is the only separate book published by Faraday. All other books that bear his name were collections of published papers or edited reports of his lectures. The purpose of this work was to make the general methods of chemistry, as distinguished from its results, the subject of special study and popular exposition. As a chemist, Faraday discovered benzene, investigated the clathrate hydrate of chlorine, invented an early form of the Bunsen burner and the system of oxidation numbers, and popularised terminology such as anode, cathode, electrode, and ion. Faraday ultimately became the first and foremost Fullerian Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, a lifetime position. (Wikisource) - Visit our website to see more images!
