At the instant of breaking connection there was a vivid flash, followed by a loud explosion. The cell was completely wrecked, and several persons standing near were thrown backwards and deluged with acid. The heavy iron clamps which secured the top to the sides of the cell were forcibly broken. and the iron handle thrown to the ceiling, breakin;, ' out a section of lath and plaster where it struck. The explosion, of course, was due to the spark caused by breaking tho circuit igniting the uncombined hydrogen and oxygen gases in the cell. The above-mentioned journal says a similar accident occurred in Pittsburgh several years ago, with serious results. In this case the cells were in a box closed with a lid, and the explosion occurred while an examination was being made by the aid of a candle, the flame of which ignited the gases that had accumulated before the lia was raised. Other cases have been noted, and as uncombined gases are always present near the end of a charge, due to the fact of the plates only taking up a portion of the gases released at that time, great care should be exercised in approaching a light or breaking a connection, where the situation is such that the gases may have had an opportunity to accumulate Closed cells, such as are used with phonographs, are particularly liable to this accident. I do not think there can be very much risk from this cause; but perhaps some electricians can say. I never hoard of a case in this country. J. M.

James Mussell reads nineteenth-century scientific debates in light of recent theoretical discussions of scientific writing to propose a new methodology for understanding the periodical press in terms of its movements in time and space. That there is no disjunction between text and object is already recognized in science studies, Mussell argues; however, this principle should also be extended to our understanding of print culture within its cultural context. He provides historical accounts of scientific controversy, documents references to time and space in the periodical press, and follows magazines and journals as they circulate through society to shed new light on the dissemination and distribution of periodicals, authorship and textual authority, and the role of mediation in material culture. Well-known writers like H. G. Wells and Arthur Conan Doyle are discovered in new contexts, while other authors, publishers, editors, and scientists are discussed for the first time. Mussell is persuasive in showing how his methodology increases our understanding of the process of transformation and translation that underpins the production of print and informs current debates about the status of digital publication and the preservation of archival material in electronic forms. Adding to the book's usefulness are an extended bibliography and a discussion of recent debates regarding digital publication.

The Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers is a unique and valuable resource for historians and astronomers alike. The two volumes include approximately 1550 biographical sketches on astronomers from antiquity to modern times. It is the collective work of about 400 authors edited by an editorial board of 9 historians and astronomers, and provides additional details on the nature of an entry and some summary statistics on the content of entries. This new reference provides biographical information on astronomers and cosmologists by utilizing contemporary historical scholarship. Individual entries vary from 100 to 1500 words, including the likes of the superluminaries such as Newton and Einstein, as well as lesser-known astronomers like Galileo’s acolyte, Mario Guiducci. A comprehensive contributor index helps researchers to identify the authors of important scientific topics and treatises.

Henry Ernest Dudeney (1857–1930) was an English author and mathematician who specialised in logic puzzles and mathematical games. He is known as one of the country's foremost creators of puzzles. The Canterbury Puzzles and Other Curious Problems is a 1907 mathematical puzzle book by Henry Dudeney. The first part of the book features a series of puzzles based on the characters from The Canterbury Tales by Geoffery Chaucer. The ebook contains illustrations, explanations and answers to each puzzle and is still actual in testing your mathematical skills and your capacity of problem solving. HISTORICAL PRESS OPINIONS ON "THE CANTERBURY PUZZLES": "It is a book of remarkable ingenuity and interest."—Educational Times. "The most ingenious brain in England ... a fascinating new book."—Evening News. "A capital book of posers."—Daily News. "The Puzzles ... reach the limit of ingenuity and intricacy; and it is well for the sanity of his readers that the author gives a list of solutions at the end of the book."—Observer. "A book that will provide much entertainment for Christmas gatherings ... ingenious puzzles and problems invented by 'Sphinx,' the Puzzle King."—The Captain. "Mr. Dudeney, whose reputation is world-wide as the puzzle and problem maker of the age ... sure to find a wide circulation ... as attractive in appearance as its contents are fascinating."—English Mechanic and World of Science. "An exceedingly ingenious constructor and solver of fascinating puzzles, mathematical and otherwise."—School Guardian. "A book which ought to be highly popular ... it is all mighty ingenious, and very intelligently put before the reader."—Sheffield Telegraph. "It is matter for delight that Mr. Henry E. Dudeney has collected into a volume those mysterious puzzles of his which have appeared in many journals ... contains quite a number of ingenious new mental problems ... a valuable introduction."—The Lady. "For the long winter evenings Mr. Dudeney's book of puzzledom is to be recommended. Mr. Dudeney has made a study of every kind of puzzle there is ... he supplies you with every kind of brain-twister."—The Daily Chronicle. "Took up more of the reviewer's time than he could well afford to give it; he wanted to solve some of the curious problems that it contains, and for ingenious persons who want employment on a wet day, he promises from it abundant scope."—Yorkshire Post. "A well-known master puzzler ... provides an abundance of seasonable occupation for the ingenious, with an introduction on the general question of puzzles, which is one of the most interesting parts of the book. He is a skilful inventor."—Nottingham Guardian. "Will enjoy the entertainment provided ... ingenious and witty."—The Guardian. "Extremely ingenious book, which abounds in problems that will keep the reader busy for hours—until in despair he turns to the answers at the end."—Manchester Guardian.
