About this picture

Description

The print was made in 1896 under the direction of the British physicist, Sir Arthur Schuster (1851-1934). Schuster was then a professor at Owen's College (now part of the University of Manchester). He was one of the first to receive the offprint of an article entitled "Über eine neue Art von Strahlen", along with a set of prints from W.K. Röntgen (1845-1923), the German physicist who discovered x-rays in 1895. Sir Arthur's daughter Dr. Nora H. Schuster presented the prints to the Wellcome Institute Library in 1962
