Leçons de physique expérimentale
Durand, Paris 1771 - Pleine basane de l'époque Six volumes in-12 (168x101 mm), (4)-civ-379 / (4)-488 / (4)-512 / (4)-535-(1 bl.) (les pages 121 à 144 sont en double) / vi-(2)-592 / iv-524 pages, un frontispice et 116 planches dépliantes Reliures un peu frottées. Petits travail de vers Jean Antoine Nollet (1700-1770) était un physicien expérimental membre éminent de l'Académie des sciences de Paris. Nollet a consacré beaucoup de temps sur l'électricité et est devenu l'une des autorités de son temps. Il conçu les premiers électromètres (1747). En 1745, il a développé une théorie de l'attraction et de répulsion électrique qui suppose l'existence d'un flux continu de matière électrique entre les organes chargés. Afin de démontrer que l'électricité se déplace à grande vitesse sur une grande distance, il réalisa l'une des expériences les plus impressionnante de l'époque. En présence du roi, il fit relié par un câble 180 gardes royaux qui formaient une ligne de plus d'un kilomètre. Il leur appliqua une décharge à l'aide d'une bouteille de Leyde (ancêtre du condensateur). Les gardes sautèrent et se contournèrent simultanément. Mélange d'éditions comme pour la plupart des exemplaires rencontrés en reliure de l'époque uniforme. DSB [X p. 145 : "Nollet's 'Cours de physique' was perhaps the most popular exhibition of this kind ever given. With carefully orchestrated demonstrations performed on some 350 different instruments, the abbé entertained his enthusiastic auditor as, in the spirit of th Enlightenment, he undertook to dispel their "vulgar errors, extravagant fears and faith in the marvellous. These were not mere shows, as one sees from their expanded syllabus, the famous 'Leçons de Physique' which appeared in six volumes between 1743 and 1748 and wad often reprinted. The presentations are lively, comprehensive, and up-to-date, with full directions, for realizing the effects under study and excellent illustrations of apparatus"] ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Contemporary full mottle sheep Six 12mo (168x101 mm), (4)-civ-379 / (4)-488 / (4)-512 / (4)-535-(1 bl.)
