of radium in the old shed where Marie Curie first obtained the element
in the early 1900s. From Pierre Curie by Marie Curie (Macmillan, 1923).
The book is turning brittle and is therefore included in the Niels
Bohr Library's microfilming project. While examining books to
prepare them for filming, library staff flag useful pictures to scan
and include in the online Emilio Segrè
Visual Archives. Photo courtesy AIP Emilio Segrè Visual
