FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of an authentic documentation of one of the most important discoveries in medical history. Complete set of the second half of the 1895-1896 volume of the important journal on photography, with issues 13 (October 1895) to 24 (March 1896), documenting the "cometary impact" of C. W. Roentgen's discovery for photography. - With the headline "Ein neues Jahr, ein neues Licht" (a new year, a new light) the editors begin the editorial of January issue No. 20 of the 1896 volume, and end it with the statement "Die Naturwissenschaft ist die Leuchte unserer Tage" (Natural science is the light of our day) - The focus of issue 21 (February 1896) is then the new discovery including a reprint of "W.C. Roentgen's Original-Mitteilung über eine neue Art von Strahlen" (W.C. Roentgen's original communication about a new kind of rays), which he had published in December 1895 in the Sitzungsberichte der Würzburger Physikalisch-medizinischen Gesellschaft. Among other things, a ringed hand is shown, made by Dr. Kärger, Dr. Mendelsohn, S. Jaffé and Fr. Behrens in Posen. - However, the dispute about the "priority claims with regard to cathode light photography" is also documented. This discussion continues until the end of the half-yearly volume. - Visit our website to see more images!
