Encouraged to share his memories of Michael Faraday (1791 1867),
John Hall Gladstone (1827 1902) published in 1872 this short work
about his late friend's life and career. Faraday's successor as
Fullerian Professor of Chemistry at the Royal Institution,
Gladstone discusses how Faraday approached science, and the value
of his discoveries. Offering informed insights into Faraday's
character, Gladstone includes a number of extracts from personal
letters. The work also includes a translation of part of the eulogy
given by Jean-Baptiste Dumas at the Academie des Sciences, as well
as an anonymous poem honouring Faraday and published in Punch
shortly after his death. An appendix lists the numerous learned
societies to which Faraday belonged. Also reissued in this series
are The Life and Letters of Faraday (1870), compiled by Henry Bence
Jones, and John Tyndall's Faraday as a Discoverer (1868)."
