"His most fundamental conclusion - that he had finally uncovered irrefutable proof for the real existence of atoms - contrary to the assertations and expectations of Ostwald, Mach, and others - was soon universally accepted and popularized in his book 'Les atomes' (1913), which went through many editions and translations."
