9781108053600: Experimental Researches in Electricity 3 Volume Set (Cambridge Library Collection - Physical Sciences)

Originally apprenticed to a bookbinder, Michael Faraday (1791-1867) began to attend Sir Humphrey Davy's chemistry lectures purely out of interest. Although he soon recognised that science would be his vocation, there was no defined career path to follow, and when he applied to Davy for work he was gently told to 'attend to the bookbinding'. It was only after a laboratory explosion in which Davy partially lost his sight that Faraday was taken on as his amanuensis. From this difficult beginning stemmed perhaps the most famous scientific career of the nineteenth century. This three-volume collection of Faraday's papers, originally published between 1839 and 1855, provides a comprehensive record of a key branch of his work. Volume 1 covers his early work in electricity and magnetism. Volume 2 includes work on the illusions caused by lightning, and Volume 3 includes his landmark paper on the effect of magnetism on light.

This three-volume collection of his papers was published between 1839 and 1855. These notes on his landmark experiments illuminate key breakthroughs in nineteenth-century science.
