INTRODUCTION TO NATURAL PHILOSOPHY
London: James Reynolds, 1850. This scarce work is an attractive and visually stimulating introduction to several scientific disciplines, including hydraulics, pneumatics, acoustics, optics, electricity, magnetism, and chemistry. While the booklet offers a concise explanation of the basic laws and properties of these various fields, the accompanying chromolithographed plates, printed on stiff card stock, illustrate these concepts with as many as 40 beautifully rendered color figures per card. The printed wrapper indicates that this work was part of a series of educational popular diagrams published by James Reynolds between 1846-51. While each of these works are considered separate publications in and of themselves, they were designed to allow the reader to pick and choose from the various subjects on offer, to suit their various interests and needs.. 288 x 230 mm. (11 1/4 x 9 1/8"). 24 pp. Original paper wrappers in original red and black striped paper board portfolio. With 11 chromolithograph plates. Three small abrasions to portfolio, leaves a shade less than bright, edge of plates a little worn, otherwise an excellent specimen, the plates especially clean and bright with vivid colors.
