The 1st Nobel Prize in Physics!

In 1901 Wilhelm Roentgen was awarded the first Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of the X-rays. The Hagströmer Library has both the first edition of the offprint of his "Eine Neue Art von Strahlen" printed in 1895 (Image 1), and the first edition of the two papers "Ueber eine neue Art von Strahlen" and "Ueber eine neue Art von Strahlen II" published in the journal "Sitzungs-berichte der Würtzburger physikalisch-medicinischen Gesellschaft zu Würzburg", from 1895-96 (Image 2).
