Die Akustik
Leipzig: Breitkopf und Härtel, 1830 - An amateur musician and instrument maker fascinated by the phenomenon of sound, Chladni is now famous for studying the vibrations of surfaces by observing the patterns created by sound waves on sand-covered plates (known commonly now as "Chladni plates"); he is often called the "Father of Acoustics". His observations were first presented in the 1802 text of DIE AKUSTIK, "which is also a general acoustics text containing very complete historical material" (DSB) (ACOUSTICS) "Neue, unveränderte Ausgabe". Third (revised) edition (first published 1802 and 1817)). 4to (10 x 8-1/4 inches). Mit 12 Kupfertafeln (title page with vignette portrait of the author, 11 plates). Recent quarter calf (original backstrip laid down) and contemporary boards. Annotated in a neat contemporary German hand. Title a bit stained and spotted, otherwise a very good copy. PMM 233b (for first ed.) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
