By John Stevens Henslow
John Stevens Henslow (1796-1861), a pupil of Adam Sedgwick, grew to become Professor of Mineralogy at Cambridge in 1822. He quickly moved to a chair in Botany, and have become a instructor and mentor to Charles Darwin. This e-book on mineralogy was once first released in 1823. It used to be meant to save lots of time in school by means of offering an simply obtainable connection with the composition of varied minerals in line with the rules of atomic thought, which was once then getting into the clinical mainstream. In that paradigm, research and exam of any mineral's composition concerned first ascertaining the mineral's simple molecules, either 'essential' and 'accidental', and moment, opting for the proportions during which the fundamental materials mixed to shape the integrant molecule of the mineral. Henslow's publication will curiosity historians of technology tracing the advance of atomic conception, and people operating extra generally within the background of collage schooling and the highbrow weather of the 19th century.
