Gilbert, the editor of Gilberts Annalen der Physik, in 1824.
Poggendorff immediately put himself in communication with the publisher, Barth of Leipzig, with the result that he was installed as editor of a scientific journal, Annalen der Physik and Cheinie, which was to be a continuation of Gilberts Annalen on a somewhat extended plan.
In the Gilberts the traces of Polynesian (Samoan) influences are evident, and are confirmed by tradition.
The houses in the Gilberts and Marshalls (much less elaborate than in the Carolines) consist merely of a thatched roof resting on posts or on blocks of coral about 3 ft.
Gilberts specializes in wood fired steaks and seafood.
