Description


Russian chemist and inventor (1834-1907) who formulated the Periodic Law and created a predictive version of the periodic table of elements. Extremely rare ALS in Russian, signed “D. Mendeleev,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 5.25 x 8.25, December 4, 1891. Letter to Vladimir Vladimirovitch concerning their joint contribution to an encyclopedia, in which he ensures the correct treatment of the terms 'gold plating' and 'nickel plating' in an article. In fine condition, with a smudge to one letter of the signature. A wonderfully crisp and boldly penned letter from the storied Russian chemist—the first Mendeleev we have ever offered.
