CarnotCycle has been fortunate to acquire the original two-volume set of Gibbs’ scientific papers published by Longmans, Green and Co. in 1906, three years after Gibbs’ death. Volume I is devoted to thermodynamics, while Volume II covers dynamics, vector analysis and multiple algebra, the electromagnetic theory of light, and other miscellaneous topics. Considering that these first edition books are well over a century old, they are in remarkably fine condition.

    I remember inheriting my grand father’s USCS steam tables and 2d edition of Perry’s. The first one actually turned out to be useful. I hope these are for you. (:
