Description  

Influential Swedish scientist (1859–1927) who received the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1903 in recognition of his theory of electrolytic dissociation. ALS in Swedish and some German, signed “Svante A,” one page, 5.5 x 3.5, July 14, 1901. Letter to fellow biochemist and Nobel Prize recipient Hans Karl von Euler-Chelpin. In part (translated): "I hereby send back the last correction for Quandt and Handel…Some new things must still be added: I put some question marks at the edge of the correction that should mean the following…p 285 Next line: should we add the lines of force that are directed to the south pole in the air from the north pole of the magnet? 'Z' means new line. '~' no new line…I must now to the laboratory with Madsen, who is waiting for me. We have to overcome all the various difficulties, but I think it will go well." In fine condition. Accompanied by a full translation in German. At the time, Arrhenius’s textbook on electrochemistry was in the process of translation from Swedish to German, to be released by publisher Quandt and Handel later in 1901. RR Auction COA.
