Rare Festschrift volume of the Annalen der Physik und Chemie on the occasional of the fiftieth anniversary of Wiedemann's doctoral dissertation. Gustav "Wiedemann was one of the outstanding members of the group of physicists trained in Berlin by H. G. Magnus. He held the first professorship of physical chemistry created in Germany (at Leipzig); and he became famous through his works on electromagnetism, especially his textbook on the theory of electricity, and through his long editorship of Annalen der Physik und Chemie, known as Wiedemanns Annalen. . .. In 1877, following Poggendorff's death, Wiedemann became editor of the Annalen der Physik und Chemie, a position he held for the rest of his life. During his editorship the Annalen became one of the most distinguished German physics periodicals. He was able to increase its usefulness by publishing the Beiblatter zu den Annalen der Physik, of which his son Eilhard became editor." DSB.
