Item 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. Bookseller Inventory # 2692

A very good set, very rare in its original publishers cloth. ---- PMM 308; Horblit 29; Norman 762, Sparrow 62, Jeffreys 297. - FIRST EDITION in book form. "Between 1832 and 1852 Faraday published twenty-nine series of papers in the Philosophical Transactions under the title "Experimental researches in electricity"; it was through these papers that his major discoveries relating to electricity and magnetism were first published . These papers, along with pertinent papers and letters published in other scientific journals, were collected in three volumes published in 1839, 1844 and 1855. The collection encompasses the entire range of Faraday's remarkable achievement, including his discovery of electromagnetic induction, his demonstration of the identity of all formes of electricity, his first general theory of electricity as a function of interparticulate strain, and the last series of researches on magnetism, containing the germ of modern field theory, in which Faraday rejected his earlier model of the transmission of magnetic energy in favor of one locating the manifestion of magnetic energy in the field surrounding the magnet." (Norman 762). The author's epoch-making discovery of the means to generate electricity by electro-magnetic induction is the principle behind the dynamo and the transformer, and the foundation of the modern electrical industry. The experiments that Faraday recorded in this paper marked the begining of his "great series of investigations into electricity" (PMM), through which he established the identity of all types of electricity, the magnetic properties of the earth and his theory of "lines" or "tubes" of magnetic force, "the starting point for the revolutionary theories of Clerk Maxwell and later of Einstein" (PMM). The original publisher's bindings are always disparate in colour and/or type of cloth. The first two volumes have a brownish-green colour of the fine-diaper cloth whereas the third volume is bound in a rather bluish-green cloth which eighter has a pebble- or a diaper texture. The Quaritch-reprints are bound in a pebble-textured cloth. Bookseller Inventory # 002137

Item 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).

Item Description: with 14 plates exactly complete and located as textually called for, with numerous textual illustrations, PHOTOGRAPHS ON REQUEST. 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

Item Description: London Richard and John Edward Taylor 1839, 1839. Very rare first collected edition of the original fourteen series of researches reprinted from the Philosophical Transactions of 1831-1838. With 8 folding plates of the series of 13 engraved illustrations depicting some of Faraday’s experiments, additional illustrations throughout the text. 4to, in later antique full chocolate calf, the boards gilt decorated, the spine with gilt ruling and a black morocco label gilt lettered. viii, 574 pp. A very pleasing copy of this rare publication, the title-page with a bit of time-wear along the fore-edge, quite clean with just minor evidence of age-toning or use, the binding solid and attractive. The discoverer of electo-magnetism, Faraday is recognized as perhaps the greatest experimental scientist of all time. This rare first collected edition of his original fourteen series of experiments includes a preface original for this publication by the author, bibliographic references and a cumulative index. Using a clue from earlier theories, Faraday discovered that a current-carrying wire would rotate around a magnetic pole or a pole around a current-carrying wire. This discovery would be the principle behind the electric motor. Pursuing this theory further, he discovered that when a wire moved around a magnetic pole a current was produced. This would become the principle behind the dynamo and the transformer, leading into a new era of experiments with electricity. Pursuing his fascination with electro-magnetism, Faraday identified all forms of electricity, whether produced by nature or by man-made machine. His theories on magnetic force would become the basis for the later theories of Clerk Maxwell and Albert Einstein. While experimenting with electrolysis, Faraday was the first to discover that gases are vaporized liquids with low boiling points and created many of the terms and processes that are the basis for modern science-electrode, electrolyze, cathode, anode and ion. Faraday contribution to science cannot be overstated. His discoveries in electricity and how create and harness it have become the building blocks of our modern life. He made possible electric power, electric lights, telephones and now the computers and telecommunications wonders of our own time. Bookseller Inventory # 27214

Item Description: Richard Taylor, Red Lion Court, Fleet Street, London, 1833. Wraps. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. First Edition. [2], 23-54 plus one plate. 4to. 8 1/8 x 10 inches. The offprint issue, but extracted from a bound volume (trimmed, spotted page edges, stitching loose). INSCRIBED by Faraday "To Amedeo Avogadro, x x x, of Turin, from the author" in the upper right hand corner. Trimmed so that only the lower part of Avogadro's name and "auth" of "author" are present. Soft center fold. Plate in rear is foxed. Wraps. "The first and second series of Experimental Researches had been concerned with the relations between electricity and magnetism. In the summer of 1832 Faraday appeared to go off on a tangent, with an investigation into the identity of the electricities produced by the various means then known. His commitment to the unity of force led him to believe that the electricities produced by electrostatic generators, voltaic cells, thermocouples, dynamos, and electric fishes were identical, but belief was no substitute for proof. Furthermore, this identity had been challenged by Sir Humphrey Davy's brother John [ and others ], who insisted that electrical effects were not produced by a single agent but were the complex results of a combination of powers." (DSB Vol 3-4, p 535)"'The progress of the electrical researches which I have had the honour to present to the Royal Society, [ Faraday ] wrote, brought me to a point at which it was essential for the further prosecution of my inquiries that no doubt should remain of the identity or distinction of electricities excited by different means.' The Third Series of Experimental Researches in Electricity was devoted to this end. [ In this Series' experimental approach ], by criticizing the experiments of others [ Faraday ] wanted to remove the seeming obstacles to the admission of the identity of electricities and by utilizing other experiments done by himself and others he wished to establish the identity. For a scientific paper of this period it is heavily footnoted and reveals Faraday's scholarship. . Whenever there was the slightest doubt as to the accuracy of an experiment, Faraday repeated it. The result was overwhelming and there was no doubt that he had proved his point." (L Pearce Williams, Michael Faraday, p213). L Pearce Williams also details how these experiments sowed the seeds which eventually led Faraday to establish a solid foundation for the science of electrochemistry. As he summarized it: "Faraday could not foresee that in following out these ideas he would not only provide a solid foundation for the science of electrochemistry, but would also throw down a challenge to the physicists of his day. For here, for the first time in his work, was the denial of action at a distance." (p223) This Third Series contains 2 papers - 7. Identity of Electricities derived from different sources., and 8. Relation by Measure of common [ static ] and voltaic Electricity. These articles are an important transitional work by Faraday, establishing that the electricities are the same regardless of source, and setting up future work that would establish the science of electrochemistry. Read Jan 10 and 17th, this is the first appearance of this lecture, in the rare offprint form. It was published in the Phil Trans: 23-54, and also in Phil Mag. 1833. It was reprinted in Faraday's famous three volume "Experimental Researches in Electricity" in 1839-55. Avogadro, to whom Faraday inscribed this offprint, was an Italian chemist who is hailed as a founder of the atomic-molecular theory. Avogadro's law is named after him. Inscribed material by Faraday is uncommon.References: DSB, Jeffreys #207. L Pearce Williams, Michael Faraday. Ekeloff 906a (referring to the collected Experimental Researches in Electricity).

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

Item 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

Item Description: 1847. Faraday, Michael (1791-1867). On the diamagnetic conditions of flame and gases. Offprint from Philosophical Magazine 31 (1847). 401-424pp. 224 x 144 mm. Original plain wrappers, spine repaired, minor chipping. Light dust-soiling but very good. Presentation Copy, Inscribed by Faraday to chemist Edward Solly (1819-86) on the first leaf: "E. Solly Esqr from the author." First Edition, Offprint Issue. "In the fall of 1847 [Faraday] had learned from Francesco Zantedeschi that flames were repelled by the poles of a strong magnet. Faraday explained this effect by a temperature-dependent (dia)magnetism of gases, and proved that all current gases except oxygen were diamagnetic with respect to the air by observing their motion after being freed in the air between the poles of an electromagnet" (Darrigol, Electrodynamics from Ampère to Einstein, p. 103). Faraday presented this copy to English chemist Edward Solly, one of his associates at the Royal Institution. Williams, Michael Faraday, pp. 396-99. Jeffreys 363. Bookseller Inventory # 43758

STEPS TOWARD ELECTRON DISCOVERY: "Experimental Researches in: Faraday, Michael

Item Description: Royal Society of London, London, 1838. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Faraday makes an early step toward the discovery of the electron. In 1838, he passed an electrical current through a glass tube containing various gases, and noticed a strange "glow discharge" that occurred at both electrodes as he evacuated the tube. The glows extended from both electrodes for some distance as he increased the evacuation, but it never fully met at the middle. Also see our #27489 for Faraday's "Experimental Researches in Electricity -- Fifteenth Series," # 27495 "Experimental Researches in Electricity -- Eighteenth Series" (pp. 17-32), & #27500 with Faraday's "Experimental Researches in Electricity -- Nineteenth, Twentieth & Twenty-First Series" (pp. 1-62), our #27503 which contains Faraday's "Experimental Researches in Electricity -- Twenty-Second Series" (pp. 1-41), our #27506 which contains"Experimental Researches in Electricity -- Twenty-Third Series" (pp. 171-188), #27508 which contains "Experimental Researches in Electricity -- Twenty-Fourth, Twenty-Fifth, Twenty-Sixth, & Twenty-Seventh Series" (pp. 1-116), #27513 "Experimental Researches in Electricity -- Twenty-Eighth & Twenty-Ninth Series" (pp. 25-56, 137-159), #27530 "Experimental Researches in Electricity --Thirtieth Series" (pp. 159-180), Also contains, J. Frederic Daniell's article, "Fourth Letter on Voltaic Combinations, with Reference to the Mutual Relations of the Generating and Conducting Surfaces." (pp. 41-56) Also contains Charles Wheatstone's article, "Contributions to the Physiology of Vision. Part the First. On Some Remarkable, and Hitherto Unobserved, Phenomena of Binocular Vision."
