About this Item

12mo. 200 pp. + 32 pp. publisher?s catalogue (dated July, 1882). Originally published in 1873, this is a brilliant series of lectures by the great scientist and equally illustrious pedagogue of science, Michael Faraday. Faraday (1791?1867) was an uneducated apprentice to a bookseller and bookbinder, but early on impressed Humphry Davy greatly, and grew to be an extraordinary experimental scientist. Like his ?Chemical History of a Candle? (1861), this series of lectures, done later in his life, are lucid, accurate, intelligent and heuristic. Aimed at younger audiences, they retain their value to all. Here he deals with gravitation, force, mass, correlation of forces, chemical affinity, heat, magnetism and electricity, and their practical consequences. Always, simple experiments reveal Faraday?s intent and understanding in remarkable clarity. Ex libris with removal of bookplate from front pastedown and canceled modest stamp on title page. Top 1? of front hinge cracked, with small chip from head of spine. Inner hinges starting. Spine darkened. Else, Very Good. Red publisher?s cloth, titled and illustrated on spine and front cover, ryuled in the blind on rear cover. Beveled boards. Coated end papers. Bookseller Inventory # 11155
