    About MATHIEU ORFILA (from Wikipedia):

    ******Mathieu Joseph Bonaventure Orfila, b.1787 d.1853, was a Spanish toxicologist and chemist, the founder of the science of toxicology.

    If there is reason to believe that a murder or attempted murder may have been committed using poison, a forensic toxicologist is often engaged to examine pieces of evidence such as corpses and food items for poison content. In Orfila's time the primary type of poison in use was arsenic, but there were not any reliable ways of testing for its presence. Orfila created new techniques, refined existing techniques and described them in his first treatise, TRAITÉ DES POISONS, Paris, 1813, (TREATMENT OF PERSONS WHO TOOK POISON first American edition, 1819).******

    About C.W.G. ROHRER, book's previous owner (from the Internet):

    About CARL G. HEMPEL (from Wikipedia):

    ******Carl Gustav "Peter" Hempel, b.1905 d.1997, was a German writer, philosopher, logician, and epistemologist. He was a major figure in logical empiricism, a 20th century movement in the philosophy of science. He is especially well known for his articulation of the deductive-nomological model of scientific explanation, which was considered the standard model of scientific explanation during the 1950s and 1960s. He is also known for the Raven Paradox, aka "Hempel's Paradox".

    After moving to Berlin, Hempel met Rudolf Carnap and became involved in the Berlin Circle of philosophers associated with the Vienna Circle.

    In 1937 Hempel emigrated to the United States, where he accepted a position as Carnap's assistant at the University of Chicago. He later held positions at the City College of New York, Yale University, and Princeton University, where he taught alongside Thomas Kuhn and remained until made emeritus in 1973. In 1977 he became the University Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh. In 1989 the Department of Philosophy at Princeton University renamed its Three Lecture Series the "Carl G. Hempel Lectures" in his honor. He was an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and of the American Philosophical Society for which he served as President.******

    About the FOUNDER of REED RESEARCH INC., Stanley Foster Reed (from Wikipedia):

    ******Stanley Foster Reed, b.1917 d.2007, was an entrepreneur, inventor, and publisher who founded Reed Research Inc. in 1940, the journal Mergers & Acquisitions in 1965, and the magazine Campaigns & Elections in 1980.

    In 1940, at age 23, Reed started a scientific research company, renting a two story building next to a junkyard in Georgetown. Over the next 20 years he built "Reed Research Inc." into a multi-million dollar company. He worked on issues ranging from safe land mine removal to electrocardiography to language learning laboratories to designs for shipping containers for missiles, obtaining scores of patents in the process. Based solely on his work experience he was admitted to membership in the Society of Naval Architects and received certification as a Professional Engineer.

    In 1962, after selling Reed Research to Log-Etronics, Inc., he started Tech-Audit as well as the Reed Research Institute for Creative Studies in the RCA Building on K Street in Washington, where he ran a number of publishing businesses.

    Reed started the publications "Directors & Boards" and "Export Today". He was the author of several books, including the best-selling "The Art of M&A" (co-authored with his daughter, Alexandra Lajoux), and "The Toxic Executive".

    In the 1960s, he was actively involved in social issues, including sponsoring programs to encourage inner-city entrepreneurship, writing about the poor of Appalachia, and lecturing on ethics.******

    About ROBERT G. COLEMAN, who SIGNED this copy (from the National Academy of Sciences website):

    ******Robert Coleman, b.1923 d.2020, an internationally recognized geologic field mapper and geochemical mineralogist-petrologist, made enormous contributions to scientists knowledge of the geologic evolution of contractional continental-margin subduction zones and to the genesis of the ocean-floor-to-upper-mantle lithosphere (that is, ophiolites-sections of Earth's oceanic crust that have been thrust onto the edges of island arcs and continental margins). During four decades of studying the origin and geologic history of western California and southwestern Oregon, Coleman rose to become a world authority on circumpacific tectonics, petrogenesis of the oceanic lithosphere, and the petrotectonics of Alpine-Tethyan convergent suture zones, chiefly in central and eastern Asia. His Ph.D. thesis on the New Idria (central California) Mineral District was a classic work documenting protrusion, diapiric ascent, of a large, low-density ultramafic complex. Coleman received a Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1957. During his doctoral studies, he also worked for the Atomic Energy Commission and in 1954 joined the staff of the U.S. Geological Survey. Departing the USGS in 1982, he became a professor at Stanford until his retirement from academia in 1993, after which he continued productive research until virtually his dying day.******

    The Hamburgisches Magazin was a scientific journal containing essays, letters to the editor, etc., on the natural and physical sciences, often highlighting work from foreign scientists translated into German.

    GREAT ASSOCIATION COPY. There is an OWNERSHIP BOOKPLATE of JOHANN FRIEDRICH BLUMENBACH, b.1752 d. 1840, on the front pastedown. Blumenbach was one of Germany's most important and influential early anthropologists. The bookplate has his PRINTED SIGNATURE on its face. I feel the Signature is PRINTED even though others claim it is HAND SIGNED / AUTOGRAPH. The two copies I found online, one held by a noted HISTORY OF SCIENCE bookseller and another held by the important Herzog August Bibliothek (Herzog August Library), claim that the signature on Blumenbach's bookplates is HAND SIGNED. However, the signatures on both the examples presented online, and mine, are EXACT in even the minutest details, and convince me that this is a printed signature. I have seen his signature on documents in the past and, like all signatures, they all had noticeable, even if sometimes small, deviations. These three examples have none that I can detect. A RARE BOOKPLATE and IMPORTANT ASSOCIATION COPY.

    GOOD MINUS CONDITION: The front cover is detached but present, the rear cover is just holding on with the cord bindings, the leather spine title labels are missing and the spine gilt has substantially worn off, the leather covered boards are rubbed and scraped, the gilt coat-of-arms on the front and rear covers is bright but scratched and rubbed; the marbling on the top edges has faded away but is visible on the front and bottom page edges; internally, there is light browning and spotting throughout but the text is always clear and fully legible, overall the pages remain tightly bound, clean and unmarked. A complete, presentable copy with a detached front cover.

    This publication is often found disbound with the various articles sold separately. It is hard to find a complete volume (i.e. 6 bound issues).

    RARE with the ownership bookplate of the great natural scientist Johann Friedrich Blumenbach.

    About JOHANN FRIEDRICH BLUMENBACH (from Wikipedia):

    ******Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, b.1752 d.1840, was a German physician, naturalist, physiologist, and anthropologist. He is considered to be a main founder of zoology and anthropology as comparative, scientific disciplines. He was also important as a race theorist.

    He was one of the first to explore the study of the human being as an aspect of natural history. His teachings in comparative anatomy were applied to his classification of human races, of which he claimed there were five, Caucasian, Mongolian, Malayan, Ethiopian, and American. He was a member of what modern historians call the Göttingen School of History.

    Blumenbach's contemporaries considered him one of the great theorists of his day and a leading light of German science. Kant and Friedrich Schelling both called him "one of the most profound biological theorists of the modern era". In the words of science historian Peter Watson, "roughly half the German biologists during the early nineteenth century studied under him or were greatly influenced by him".******

    Approved and SIGNED at the bottom of the title page by ZYGMUNT A. PIOTROWSKI, Murray Bilmes's Ph.D. Research Adviser.

    (Zygmunt A. Piotrowski, b.1904 d.1985, was a Polish born American psychologist who worked on the Rorschach test. He received the Bruno Klopfer Award in 1971 and the Award for Distinguished Professional Contributions from the American Psychological Association in 1980. Piotrowski developed a method of analysis for the Rorschach test he termed perceptanalysis, which emphasized perception of the images rather than secondary associations.)

    GOOD condition, the pages are lightly age toned, the typescript is best read with a bright white sheet placed beneath the page being read else these thin sheets allow the type of the underpages to come through making legibility difficult. The hardcover binding shows some wear but is doing its job well.

    Advanced Psychology at NYU in 1955. Have things changed? Let me consult my Rorschach cards...

    From the Abstract (at the rear of the Thesis):

    ******The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect on personality of group influence. The following experiment was conducted: Thirty subjects received three Rorschach tests. The first was intended to provide an initial estimate of personality variables. The second, a two member group test, required subjects to compare impressions to the blots, ostensibly in order to establish as group responses those percepts they could agree on. The third was again an individual test. By comparing the first and third Rorschachs it became possible to determine how the group experience modified the Rorschach variables. By evaluating the personality referents of these variables, inferences were drawn concerning the personality modification. Subjects obviously did not themselves change; only their Rorschachs did. Unknown to each subject, his partner in the group test was the examiner's confederate and "saw" only responses he had been instructed to see...******

    About Wilhelm Hermann Henneberg (from Wikipedia, roughly translated from the German by Google):

    ******Wilhelm Hermann Henneberg, b.1871 d.1936,

    was a German bacteriologist and first director of the Bacteriological Institute at the Prussian Experimental and Research Institute of Dairy.

    From 1897 he was employed in the vinegar department at the Institute of Fermentation in Berlin. From 1906 he headed the bacteriological department of the technical scientific laboratory of the Institute of Fermentation. In 1922 he was appointed to Kiel to head the Bacteriological Institute of the Prussian Experimental and Research Institute of Dairy Farming. In the eleven years as a university professor in Kiel, he supervised more than 80 dissertations and wrote several textbooks on the bacteriology of milk. Henneberg initiated the founding of the Federation of Technical Bacteriologists .

    For bacteriological diagnostics, Henneberg invented new methods of investigation, such as the Chinese blue water agar developed especially for dairy farming, the spring stick culture and the cover glass agar method.

    In his last years he devoted himself to the study of the saprophyte flora of the intestine and the human intestinal flora, in particular their conversion by the consumption of dairy products such as yoghurt and acidophilus milk.******

    Listings sometimes incorrectly state that this book was published in 1969.
