Sir Frederick Abel

First American Edition. Sir Frederick Abel was an English chemist who was recognized as the leading British authority on explosives. He is best known for the invention of cordite as a replacement for gunpowder in firearms. In this lecture, Abel surveyed the experiments on gunpowder for both rifles and cannons that later led to his cordite invention and pays tribute to the "ingenuity and untiring perseverance of Nobel, his future legal nemesis, for producing the "remarkable explosive liquid nitro-glycerine."

Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1871. Original wrappers, cloth staple spine, folding chart, pp. 35. Some soiling to the front cover, else near fine. Scarce.
