BOEKE, Hendrik Enno.
(1881 - 1918)

(Born: Wormerveer, The Netherlands, 12 September 1881; Died: Frankfurt am Main, Germany, 6 December 1918) Dutch mineralogist & geologist.

Boeke settled in Germany in 1905. He became professor of mineralogy at the University of Leipzig in 1908. In 1911, he relocated to the University of Halle, and in 1914 to the University of Frankfurt-am-Main, where he remained. He worked primarily on studying minerals from a physico-chemical standpoint.

8°: π4 1-38 46; 34l.; [i]-viii, [1]-58, [2] p., 57 illus. In a back pocket there are found, "Stereographische Projektions." Page size: 232 x 156 mm.

Scarce. This work introduces and describes the use of stereographic projections in crystallography. This technique, still used today, plots the angles of a crystal form onto a special graph. This work includes discussions of angle measurement, polar coordinates, Wulff nets and their construction and how it is applied to the seven crystallographic systems. Examples of the stereographic projections are found in a back pocket.

8°: π2 1-38 44; 30l.; [i]-iv, [1]-54, [2] p., 49 illus. Page size: 198 x 130 mm.

Contents: [i-ii], Title page, verso "Alle Rechte, | ..."; [iii]-iv, "Inhalt."; [1]-54, Text.; [1 pg], Blank.; [1 pg], Advertisements.

Scarce. This work provides an introduction to "gnomonic" projection and it application in crystallography. The work defines the projection technique, the foundations of its construction, creation of stenographic projections, elements of the different crystal systems, method of labeling crystal faces, and the conversion of symbols onto the projection.
