van den Broek's Periodic Table 2

From Wikipedia: Antonius Johannes van den Broek (1870-1926) was a Dutch amateur physicist notable for being the first who realized that the number of an element in the periodic table (now called atomic number) corresponds to the charge of its atomic nucleus. The 1911 inspired the experimental work of Henry Moseley, who found good experimental evidence for it by 1913. van den Broek envisaged the basic building block to be the 'alphon', which weighed twice as much as a hydrogen atom.

Read more in Chapter 4, Antonius Van Den Broek, Moseley and the Concept of Atomic Number by Eric Scerri. This chapter can be found in the book: For Science, King & Country: The Life and Legacy of Henry Moseley (Edited by Roy MacLeod, Russell G Egdell and Elizabeth Bruton).

van den Broek's periodic table of 1907: Annalen der Physik, 4 (23), (1907), 199-203

van den Broek's periodic table of 1911: Physikalische Zeitschrift, 12 (1911), 490-497); and also a paper in Nature the same year entitled: The Number of Possible Elements and Mendeléff's "Cubic" Periodic System, Nature volume 87, page 78 (20 July 1911)

Emerson's Periodic Table of Atomic Weights

Emerson BK, Helix chemica: A study of the periodic relations of the elements and their graphic representation, American Chemical Journal, vol. 45, pp. 160–210 (1911). The formulation below appears on page 173; a scanned pdf version of the paper can be viewed here.

René Vernon writes:

Emerson includes two elements before hydrogen: "E" (either the luminiferous ether or the electron) and "Coronium". There are also two elements between hydrogen and helium: "Nebulium" and "Protofluorine".

This is the first time I have seen a PT showing four extra elements and where they are supposed to fit.

After La, Emerson incorporates 13 lanthanides (Ce to Lu) as transition elements into his 7th period.

Emerson missed dysprosium, between Tb and Ho.

"A, B and C" at the bottom right are supposed to be 'halogen emanations'.

Mark Leach adds that Emerson's very odd Periodic Table of Atomic Weights does not actually show any atomic weights.
