Paris Gueffier 1784 - (20 x 12,5 cm). XVI, 636 S. Lederband der Zeit. Einzige Ausgabe dieses Sigaud de la Fond gewidmeten Werkes. - "This extensive work on gases is in three parts: I. physical properties of air, II. discussion of individual gases and III. the atmosphere. Each part gives up to date as well as some historical material including principles and experiments. Part II. is of special interest with chapters on fixed air, inflammable airs, dephlogisticated air and nitrous air. The works of Priestley, Cavendish, Ingenhousz, Fontana, Lavoisier, Volta and others are described. In general, the author uses the phlogiston theory but does describe Lavoisier's experiments on the composition of water. The chapter on inflammable airs has a long section on balloons and the experiments and early flights of the Montgolfier brothers, P. de Rozier, Charles and Robert, and others" (Cole). - Der Verfasser war Professor für Physik und Demonstrator in Paris. - Durchgehend ein kleines Wurmloch im unteren weißen Rand. Oberes Kapital bestoßen, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. - Poggendorff II, 705; Cole 1136 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
