Book Description: [London, not after November 22 1855], 1855. Half page on a folded folio sheet (322 x 420 mm), 20 lines, with a few corrections, the sheet folded for posting, labelled on outside in ms ‘Mr Faraday abstract’ and ‘Abstract of Dr Faraday's Paper’, together with enclosing sheet folded for posting, addressed in Faraday’s hand to ‘Dr [William] Sharpey, Secretary, Royal Society, Somerset House’ and with Faraday's signature in lower left corner, with red wax seal (broken), together in a cloth box. £12,500Autograph manuscript by Michael Faraday, an abstract of his paper for the 30th series, section 40, of his Experimental researches in electricity, published as a series of papers in the Transactions of the Philosophical Society between 1832 and 1855. The abstract itself was published before the Phil. trans., in Proceedings of the Royal Society, vol 7, pp 524-6 (1855). This is the only Faraday scientific manuscript I am aware of appearing recently for sale.The full paper was read before the Royal Society on November 22, and published in the Phil. trans. in 1856. Interestingly, the three papers of the 30th series were not included in the collected edition of the papers, volume three, which also appeared in 1855 (nor do they appear in the later reprints).This manuscript represents some of Faraday’s final work on electromagnetism, and his experimental investigations of fields of force, the precursor of Maxwell’s field theory. It continues the theme of sections 38 and 38, titled respectively ‘Constancy of differential magnecrystallic force in different media’ and ‘Action of heat on magnecrystals’. It begins: ‘Results were sought for by which the magnetic force of bodies already examined in the condition of magnecrystals might be compared with the whole paramagnetic or diamagnetic force of the same bodies, taken in the granular or amorphous state.’ followed by an examination of the change of magnetic properties in relation to the temperature of the object.‘During the 1850s when the stream of highly speculative papers on the nature of force and its transmission were appearing in the Philosophical Magazine . Faraday continued his experimental researches. The concept of the lines of force and the field now provided him with an overall picture of physical reality. The chain, in a sense, was complete. Only here and there was a link missing, and these Faraday sought to discover’ (L. Pearce Williams, Michael Faraday, a biography, p 465). ‘By the mid-1850s Faraday had gone as far as he could go. He had provided a new perspective for those who would look on all manifestations of force in the phenomenal world. His description of this perspective was fuzzy and imprecise but capable of clarification and precision if taken up by someone who could share Faraday's vision. Such a man was James Clerk Maxwell, who, in the 1850s and 1860s, built field theory on the foundations Faraday had laid’ (DSB).Faraday’s manuscripts are in the Royal Institution and the Royal Society, including the majority of papers read to these institutions. Letters by Faraday do occasionally appear for sale, but no scientific manuscript has been offered on the market in my experience.Both enclosing sheet and manuscript are on paper watermarked ‘W. Stradling 1851’.For the published version see Jeffreys 427 and Wheeler Gift 2998 Language: en. Bookseller Inventory # 2692

Phillips, London, 1827. First edition. *Faraday's only separate monograph, his other publications being collections of scientific papers, or transcriptions of lectures. This copy is inscribed by him at head of title page: 'Edmund R. Daniell Esqr with the Author's Respects". Edmund Robert Daniell was a fellow of Royal Institution, and the brother of Faraday's friend John Frederic Daniell, a chemist and physicist remembered for his invention of an electric battery known as the Daniell cell. Edmund Daniell, who was a barrister, and the author of A Treatise on the Practice of High Court Chancery, was elected Secretary of the Institution in 1831. Faraday was the Institution's inaugural Fullerian Professor of Chemistry, a position to which he was appointed for life. As director of the laboratory, he spent most of his working life at the institution, where he made many of his important scientific discoveries. Chemist, physicist, educator and philosopher, Faraday was one of the most influential scientists in history. It is said that Albert Einstein kept a picture of Faraday on his study wall, alongside one of Isaac Newton. Bookseller Inventory # 113975

Book Description: 1832-56, London, 1832. Faraday, Michael (1791-1867). Experimental researches in electricity. 30 series of papers, plus supplement to the 11th series, extracted from Philosophical Transactions. 4to. 18 plates. [London, 1832-56]. 285 x 224 mm. Extracts bound in 1 vol., modern morocco gilt. Fine set.First Editions. An extremely rare, fine complete set of Faraday's epochal papers on electricity, as they originally appeared in the Philosophical Transactions over 24 years. It was through his "Experimental researches" that Faraday announced his major findings relating to electricity and magnetism, the most important of which was his discovery of the means of generating electricity from electro-magnetic induction-the principle behind the dynamo and the transformer, and the foundation of the modern use of electricity. The "Experimental researches" also contain Faraday's demonstration of the identity of all forms of electricity, his discovery of the laws of electrolysis, his announcement of the fundamental relations between light and magnetism, his first general theory of electricity as a function of interparticulate strain, and his last series of researches on magnetism, containing the germ of the modern field theory, in which Faraday rejected his earlier model of the transmission of magnetic energy in favor of one locating the manifestation of magnetic energy in the field surrounding the magnet. Our set includes Faraday's 30th and final series of the "Experimental researches," published in 1856 and not included in the book-form edition (1839-55) or in the collected papers, like ours, cited as no. 64 in Dibner's Heralds of Science; this 30th series contains Faraday's papers on "Constancy of differential magnecrystallic force in different media" (no. 38), "Action of heat on magnecrystals" (no. 39), and "Effect of heat upon the absolute magnetic force of bodies" (no. 40).

First Editions, extracted from The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1832-1856, superbly bound in a large thick quarto, three-quarter green morocco, with raised bands gilt, by Trevor Lloyd, with the general title-page for the first part (1832) retained, most plates with very small and neat embossed uninked library name (this virtually invisible), one plate with small repairs in upper blank margin, an excellent attractive set beautifully preserved and bound, London, The Royal Society, 1832-1856. * See Printing and the Mind of Man, 308 and Horblit 29 (both citing the later collected book-form edition).*An extremely rare complete set of Faraday's epochal papers on electricity, as they originally appeared in the Philosophical Transactions over 24 years. Between 1832 and 1856, Faraday published in the Philosophical Transactions a series of 30 papers entitled "Experimental Researches in Electricity," in which his major discoveries relating to electricity and magnetism were first announced to the world. The first 29 of these papers were collected and published in three volumes between 1839 and 1855; the 30th paper, published in 1856, never appeared in book form. The "First series" of the "Experimental researches," published in 1832, is Faraday's single most important scientific paper: it reports his discovery of the means for generating electricity by electro-magnetic induction and his invention of the dynamo. Regarding Faraday's invention of the dynamo, his biographer L. Pearce Williams has this to say: ". . . it was impossible to realize at the time the revolution in man's life that would be worked by future developments of this apparatus. . . . From this simple laboratory toy was to come the whole of the electric power industry and the benefits to everyone that have followed upon the ability to transport electricity to even the smallest village or farm. Faraday did realize that here was a possible source of cheap electric current, but he was too immersed in discovery to think of pursuing the practical aspects. . . . The story is told that Sir Robert Peel, the Prime Minister, visited Faraday in the laboratory of the Royal Institution soon after the invention of the dynamo. Pointing to this odd machine, he inquired of what use it was. Faraday is said to have replied, "I know not, but I wager that one day your government will tax it" (Williams, Michael Faraday, pp. 195-96). The "Second series" of the "Experimental Researches," which deals with terrestrial electromagnetic induction and the force and direction of electromagnetic induction generally, is of almost equal importance to the "First series," as it represents the birth of the field concept. Through his experiments, Faraday had made the surprising discovery that the lines or curves of force generated by a magnet are independent of their source. Williams writes that: "in the same paper [i.e., the "Second series"] in which Faraday had noted the independence of the magnetic lines of force, he also introduced a new concept. This was the idea of the field of force generated in time and extending progressively through space. . . . For the next thirty years [Faraday] was to search for essentially two things: the way in which electric and magnetic forces were transmitted through space, and the relation between these forces and ponderable matter. It is no exaggeration to say that a fundamentally new way of looking at physical reality was introduced into science in this Second Series of the Experimental Researches. Hitherto all that had been really attended to was the effects of forces acting upon matter. Henceforth, the problem of the way in which the force was transmitted between particles of matter or even through empty space was to loom ever larger. Out of the successive answers given by Faraday, James Clerk Maxwell and Albert Einstein was t. Bookseller Inventory # 23258

Dear Sir, Can you, from the few experiments you have made in this house, and from your knowledge on the subject of Lighting, answer the following questions: 1. What is the ratio of light of an oil and gas burner? 2. What is the ratio of heat? 3. Is either sulphurous or sulphuric acid formed by the combination of coal gas in the ordinary way? 4. From a gas light, properly regulated, is gas respired? 5. Will an oil or gas light soonest soil the ceiling of a room. 6. What effect will the heat evolved have on the temperature of a room? 7. What are the comparative effects of oil and gas lights on the quality of air, light for light? 8. What are the comparative qualities of the light from oil and gas? 9. Taking all the circumstances into consideration, what, in your opinion, is the cause of the oppresive feeling complained of in certain rooms in the Atheaeum? 10. Why has oil been displaced by gas in the public rooms of the Royal Institution? I remain, Dear Sir, Yours very sincerely, E. Magrath, Secretary. Michael Faraday, Esq. " Faraday answers the ten questions as follows: "Royal Institution, Feb. 14, 1831 Dear Sir, The following are the best answers I am able to give your queries: 1. In an experiment made at the Athenaeum, with an excellent argand oil lamp, regulated by Mr. Hancock, and compared with a 15-hole gas burner, the light of the gas was to that of the oil as 21 to 13. 2. In experiments made to determine the heat evolved for equal quantities of light from oil and gas burning brightly from argand burners, the best from the oil being 2, that from the gas was nearly 3. 3. A little sulphurous or sulphuric acid is generally formed from the combustion of coal gas. If well-purified gas be used, this product is rarely sensible; it is less sensible as sulphuric than as sulphurous acid. Upon closely questioning persons who have declared that they smelt the sulphur from gas, I have usually found they meant something else; generally the oppresive heat, or the dry sensation, or the smell of a little gas unburnt, none of which have anything to do with the sulphur product from gas. " Faraday continues to answer questions 4-10 contained in this folded document mailed to the addressee, a member of the Athenaeum. Bookseller Inventory # 4236

Book Description: 1837. Faraday, Michael (1791-1867). Autograph letter, signed, to Mrs. Reynolds. [London,] Royal Institution, 28 Sept. 1837. 2pp. plus integral blank. 229 x 189 mm. Creased where previously folded, small marginal tear, pin-holes in upper right corner of first leaf, otherwise fine. Autograph letter by Michael Faraday, the British physicist best known for his discovery of electromagnetic induction and his invention of the dynamo. The second paragraph of the letter mentions "two copies of the paper written by Dr. Moll of which I spoke to Dr. Reynolds". This this may be a reference to Gerard Moll's On the Alleged Decline of Science in England (1831), a pamphlet published as a rebuttal to Charles Babbage's Reflections on the Decline of Science in England, and on Some of its Causes (1830). Moll's pamphlet was edited and published by Faraday; see Origins of Cyberspace, no. 40. In the same paragraph, Faraday refers to "Daniell," probably John Frederic Daniell (1790-1845), inventor of the long-functioning electric battery known as the Daniell cell (see DSB). In the first paragraph, Faraday thanks Mrs. Reynolds for her hospitality and sends her a gift of some nets used in shaping boiled dumplings: . . . having obtained the nets I spoke of I now send them. Remember they are not for such a dish as the one you gave me the receipt for but for common place hard currant dumplings things perhaps which you never saw but which are nevertheless very good things of their kind. The dumpling when put into its net is to be tied up tight (but not squeezed) and when turned out after boiling presents-but you must make the experiment". We have not been able to identify Faraday's correspondent. Bookseller Inventory # 38489

Book Description: Richard Taylor, London, 1831. Paperback. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. Offered is a Near Fine First Edition entire unbound (never bound) volume of the Philosophical Transactions for 1831 with scattered foxing. Unbound sheets are housed in custom black cloth covered clamshell box with gilt lettering on spine label. A very unusual format, rarely seen. 4to. Early in 1831, Michael Faraday began working with Charles Whetstone (1802-1875) the noted physicist best remembered for his work in acoustics--he invented a sound magnifier which he called a "microphone". Faraday was intrigued by the patterns formed by light powder spread on iron plates when those plates where thrown into vibration by a violin bow. Faraday was interested in the potential for a dynamic system to cause a static effect on the powder. Many believe that acoustic induction was the inspiration for Faraday's discovery of electrical induction (reported in August ,1831). Bookseller Inventory # 45528
