Printing and the Mind of Man (PMM) 394 for the 1903 first edition - "The Discovery of Radium [. . .] A further examination of the residue of pitchblende after the removal of uranium and polonium disclosed residual radio-activity far grreater than was possessed by either substance alone. To this material the name of radium was given. This was in 1898 and already Marie was able to estimate its probable atomic weight as 226.2. Although not yet isolated in its pure form, radium was found to be about two million times as radio-active as uranium." [Seller Ref: KnightCol]; 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 15182
