1.   Bolton, Henry Carrington, 1843-1903.
A Select Bibliography of Chemistry / by Henry Carrington Bolton.
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 Bolton’s 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 Bolton’s 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.

Originally published: London : Henry Sotheran and Co., 1921. “This catalogue was started in 1906 based on a large collection of books in exact and applied science, and was expanded to reach about three hundred pages. It grew as it went, and by the end of the alphabet so many more works in allied subjects, as well as other and interesting copies of books already described, had come in that a Supplement was begun, still more fully annotated, which far exceeded the size of the original scheme. “—from the preface.This is perhaps the first historical catalogue of Science published in any country, at least as giving at once the current price of each book included, bibliographical particulars, and many biographical and historical references both in the descriptions themselves and in the notes. 17397 items are described. There is a wealth of information provided, including plate count and frequent annotation. An index is provided. Though later expanded, these are the basic and still most important volumes.
