On the Conservation of Force; a Physical Memoire.London: Taylor & Francis, 1853.
First edition in English of his very rare paper 'Über die Erhaltung der Kraft', 1847 (PMM 323, Grolier/Horblit 48, Dibner 159, Sparrow 96). "This short paper of twenty-eight pages, 'On the Conservation of Energy', is the first comprehensive statement of the first law of thermodynamics: that all modes of energy, heat, light, electricity, and all chemical phenomena, are capable of transformation from one to the other but are indestructable and cannot be created." (Printing and the Mind of Man, p.196). "Helmholtz analyzed different forms of energy and different kinds of force and motion, classifying them as kinetic or potential. He gave mathematical expression to the energy of motion, thus providing an experimental measure for research into force and energy. The principle of conservation of energy proved to be of fundamental importance both in scientific research and in the development of technology." (Norman 1039).. 8vo: 224 x 145 mm. In: 'Scientific Memoires, Selected from the Transactions of Foreign Academies of Science, and from Foreign Journals', pp. 114-162. The complete volume (IV, 360 and 5 plates) offered in contemporary quarter-morocco. Spine with some wear. Small rubber stamp to title page and plates (not belonging to the Helmholtz paper). A very good copy
