First edition. Series: California Studies in the History of Science. 8vo. xv, 501 pp. Illus., 3 tables, index. Pink-stamped gray cloth, dust-jacket. Fine. ISBN: 0520081102 The "quiet revolution" that emerged in the 1850s from the turbulent disputes regarding theories of chemical types, radicals, and constitutions gave rise during the following decade to a new science: structural organic chemistry. This powerful set of ideas, resulting from investigation of the arrangements of atoms within molecules, still serves today as the theoretical foundation of organic chemistry. Yet, as Alan Rocke shows in this vigorously contextualized biography, the story involves much more than chemical science alone. [Out-of-print]. First Edition.
