Dedicated to Eilhard Wiedemann, Josef Wurschmidt, Edmund O. von Lippmann. 4 volumes. XII, 486; X, 508; XI, 434; XII, 630 pp. Frontispieces (Aristotle, Galileo, Gauss, Hemholtz), 64, 132, 65 + 74 illus., index. Original black-stamped gray cloth; hinges with some splitting, some fraying at spine ends. Rubber-stamp on title of E.H. Johnson. Good. George Sarton, A Guide to the History of Science, states "this is still today the largest history of science available in any language. It is elementary and imperfect, yet DANNEMANN was a pioneer and deserves our gratitude. Wolf's work is partly derived from it." â€“ p. 118. PROVENANCE: Elbe Herbert Johnson, whose first name was pronounced "El bee", taught physics at Kenyon College for forty-one years. He was born in Traverse City, Michigan in 1887 and graduated from Olivet College in Michigan in 1911. After three years of graduate work at the University of Wisconsin, he joined the Kenyon faculty as an Assistant Professor of Physics and Chemistry in 1914. The following year he became an Associate Professor of Physics, and was promoted to Professor in 1918. Meanwhile he was doing graduate work at the University of Chicago in the field of spectroscopy, and received his doctorate in physics in 1926. He published a laboratory manual, and was well-known for his course in the history of physics. For many years he was the sole faculty member teaching physics at Kenyon. Professor Johnson retired in 1954, moved to Danville, Ohio, where he added to his large collection of clocks, and died in 1967. He wrote on Johannes Kepler (1931). See: JOHANN KEPLER. 1571-1630.
