A Select Bibliography of Chemistry / by Henry Carrington Bolton.
Author: Bolton, Henry Carrington, 1843-1903.
Publisher: Mansfield Centre, CT : Martino Pub., c2006.

xiii, 1212 p., index, 24 cm. Henry Carrington Bolton (1843-1903) was truly a Renaissance man, a chemist, world traveler, academic, alpine climber, folklorist, bibliographer, historian and bibliophile. The Bolton Society, an organization of chemical bibliophiles sponsored by the Chemical Heritage Foundation, is named for him. Of the many contributions which grew out of Boltonís many and varied interests, the most lasting has proved to be his exhaustive works in bibliography, works which are not likely to be surpassed. A Select Bibliography of Chemistry, 1452-1892 published in 1893, contains 12,031 titles. A sampling of topics covered by Boltonís more than 300 monographs, journal articles and addresses shows the breadth of his interests: action of light on uranium, counting-out rhymes for children, Russian transliteration, Chinese alchemy, glaciers, the early medical practice of women, microscopic crystals found in the vertebrae of toads, Bolton family genealogy, humor in chemistry, index to the literature of uranium, fortune telling, Hawaiian pastimes, evolution of the thermometer, divination with mirrors, physics and faith, language used in talking to domesticated animals, and musical notes emitted by certain beach sands when stepped on. His collection of 600 early books on alchemy and chemistry was one of the finest of its kind at the time. It seems that he was equally at home in all subjects. This title remains a standard work to this day. Published in conjunction with the Bolten Society. Sheehy (10th) ED 10. Stock# 1464x. Fine / new from publisher.
