AMPERE, ANDRÉ-MARIE AND JACQUES BABINET. - Darstellung der Neuen Entdeckungen uber die Electricitat und den Magnetismus von Oerstedt, Arago, Ampere, H. Davy, Biot, Erman, Schweigger, de la Rive u.f.w. .. aus dem Franzsischen.
Leipzig 1822. Octavo contemporary (or original?) marbled boards (spine quite rubbed but all perfectly solid and very acceptable); ,118pp and two folding plates. A bit of spotting but a very good, fresh copy. ¶ First published in the same year in Paris (Expose des Nouvelles Decouvertes sur l'Electricite et le Magnetisme), this seems to be the only contemporary translation of this quite significant little book. Oerstedt made the basic discovery in the relationship between electricity and magnetism in 1820 and Ampere then 'not only evolved the complete explanation of all the electro-magnetic phenomena observed before him, but predicted many hitherto unknown' (Mottelay).AUD 1250.00 [Appr.: EURO 858.5 US$ 939.41 | £UK 732 | JP¥ 104607] Book number 7739
