Science (général) - Quantité : 1 - Livre

An introduction into Electricity.
by James Ferguson.

Published: London 1775 (Second edition)

Size: 21cm x 13cm (8 inches x 5 inches)

Selling here is a scarce copy of Ferguson's, 'Introduction into Electricity'. With all three plates.
Electrical science was in its infancy, so the book is about demonstrations of static electricity, the use of electricity in medicine and electrically-driven toys.

Condition:

The book has been rebound in 3/4 brown morocco. There is wear and scuffing to calf, with a few marks, but the book is holding firm. Internally, general toning and spotting, with browning to margins. First folding plate with marginal nicks and fraying to edges - see images. Off-setting from plates to opposite leaf. Ink ownership to endpaper. One or two leaves chipped to margins and with the odd grubby mark. Very good copy of this scarce book overall, for the age. Please see our images for further description.
