5 LENARD, Philipp von (1862-1947). "Ueber Kathodenstrahlen in Gasen von atmoshärischem Druck und im äussersten Vacuum." with: "Ueber die magnetische Ablenkung der Kathodenstrahlen."
In: Annalen der Physik und Chemie, Neue Folge, Vols. 51 + 52, 1894. Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth (Arthur Meiner), 1894. 1894 
Two volumes. 8vo. Pages (225)-267; (23)-33. [Both volumes: viii, 760; viii, 792 pp.] 4 tables, figs. 1-12 on plate IV; 1 table, figs. 13-15 on plate I. Quarter black cloth, cloth corners, paste-paper over boards, gilt spines. Ms. paper spine label and ex library rubber stamps, else fine. FIRST EDITION. "In 1891 Hertz had found that metal leaf transmits cathode rays. This stimulated his student Philipp Lenard to construct vacuum tubes with a small aperture, over which he placed a thin foil, the 'Lenard window'. In this way he established that the rays can pass through a window thickness opaque to visible light. His studies of the transmission of the rays through outside air or through high vacuum led him to conclude that the rays are not molecular, and that they do bend in external electric fields." Pais. Lenard nearly discovered X-Rays. Roentgen duplicated Lenard's experimental apparatus in his own research; Abraham Pais documents four techniques Roentgen used by applying Lenard's earlier work. One area of difference was "in the kind of encasement with which Lenard had surrounded his tube 'in order to protect the detection space from the light and the electric forces of the discharge.' It consisted of lead and tinned iron." This was likely sufficient to prevent Lenard's detection of X-Rays two years prior to Roentgen. - Pais, Inward bound, p. 40. "Although Lenard narrowly missed making several discoveries that brought acclaim to others, he was awarded the 1905 Nobel prize for Physics 'for his work on cathode rays.' On presenting the award, Arne Lindstedt of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said, 'It is clear that Lenard's work on cathode rays has not only enriched our knowledge of these phenomena, but has also served in many respects as a basis for the development of the electron theory.'" - Wasson. DSB, VIII, pp. 180-183; Pais, Inward bound, p. 81; Wasson, Nobel Prize winners, pp. 620-623. First Edition.
