Item Description: Paris, 1798. Offprint from Comptes Rendus Institut national. 4to. 107pp. 273 x 203 mm. Original wrappers, uncut, some foxing & wear but fine. In a cloth box. [Paris, at least 1798.] First Separate Edition. Reports the preliminary work of the commission appointed to study galvanism, in the spring of 1797. This commission included Couloumb and had the assistance of the Alexander von Humboldt. By the time the commission garthered, Galvani had already done his utmost to establish animal electricity for which he made the first claims in 1791 (Garrison-Morton 593). He had offered proof of purely biological transmission of electricity to counter Volta in 1794 and 1797, while Volta continued to insist on contact electricity and worked his way up to the first electric battery. See Garrison-Morton 608 for Humboldt's contribution to animal electricity. Dibner, Galvani-Volta (1952) 34. Bookseller Inventory # 1005

Item Description: apud Societatem Typographicam, Modena, 1792. Presentation copy of the first edition in book form, and the first to contain the notes and commentary by Giovanni Aldini, Galvani?s nephew and principal apologist, of this epoch-making work, one of the most important in the history of electricity. This is a superb presentation/association copy, inscribed by Aldini, of the first issue (with the letter ?E? in figure 22 uncorrected ? see Fulton & Stanton). Galvani (1737-98) believed that ?animals possess in their nerves and muscles a subtle fluid quite analogous to ordinary electricity'? (DSB). In the course of his experiments, Galvani hit upon by accident the phenomenon of ?galvanism?, the production of an electric current between two metals in a moist environment. This discovery led directly, in the hands of Alessandro Volta, to the first source of a continuous electric current. Galvani first published his theory in one of the ?Opuscula? of the Proceedings of the Bologna Academy of Science (De Bononiensi scientiarum et atrium instituto atque academia, 7, pp. 363-418), where it aroused great interest and controversy. The offprint of this article, the first separate edition of the work, is known in only a dozen copies. Aldini published this edition with his extended notes and commentary, but with Galvani?s text unchanged from its journal appearance. The engraved plates by Galvani?s friend Jacobo Zambelli, which graphically illustrate Galvani?s dissections and electrical apparatus, belong to the most famous of all illustrations in the history of biology. At the end of the present work appears an exchange of letters between Don Bassano Carminati and Galvani, containing Carminati?s report of Volta?s repetition of Galvani?s experiments, which Volta interpreted correctly as the result of contact electricity. No other presentation copies of this book are located in auction records. Honeyman?s is the only copy of the offprint recorded by ABPC/RBH (Sotheby?s, 5 November 1979, lot 1428, $29,859).Provenance: Giovanni Aldini (1762-1834), presentation inscription on flyleaf to: ?Isarn,? probably Joseph Izarn (1766-1847), who was inspector general of the Universities of France, Professor of Physics and Physician of the French Army. ?Joseph Izarn published in 1804 his Manuel du galvanisme. He was an expert on galvanism, and presented lectures on this subject before the Société Libre des Sciences, Lettres et Arts de Paris, the Société Académique des Sciences and the Société Galvanique. Scientists, politicians and other eminent people (such as Laplace, Lacépède, Chaptal, Joseph and Lucien Bonaparte) attended his demonstrations? (de Andrade Martins, p. 95). In the same year, 1804, Aldini published his own Essai theorique et experimental sur le galvanisme.?By the end of the eighteenth century the connexion between nervous action and electricity had been the subject of investigation for some time. Newton, when discussing the properties of aether, had made suggestions that an electric spirit might convey sensations to the brain along the nerves and produce muscular reactions. Haller also made experiments trying to prove a connexion between electrical action and reflexes of the muscles. It was left to Luigi Galvani, professor of anatomy at Bologna, in ?On the Effects of Electricity on Muscular Motion?, to provide, as he thought, dramatic experiments on what he called ?animal electricity? and afterwards ?galvanism? Galvani observed in his laboratory that when a nerve in a frog?s leg was touched with a scalpel, violent contractions of the muscles occurred simultaneous with the sparks discharged from a nearby electrical machine. He further discovered that when one metal was placed in contact with a frog?s nerve, another with a muscle, and the metals touched, contraction of the muscle took place, without needing a spark from an electrical machine. As a physiologist, Galvani thought that this action was due to the presence of electricity in the animal itself, as in the ?electric eel? and that the metal w. Bookseller Inventory # 4141
