Amsterdam: C. G. Van Der Post, 1853. First Separate Edition. Wraps. Very Good. First Separate Edition. [1]-24 pages. Original brown wrappers printed in black. Uncut and unopened. 4to. 9 x 11.25 inches. Front wrapper darkened overall and at the edges. Text in Dutch. Loosely translated, the title is: "On the theory of magnetic lines of force of Faraday. Published by the Royal Academy of Sciences in Amsterdam" Wraps. No doubt in part a commentary on Faraday's "On the Physical Character of the Lines of Magnetic Force" published in the previous year. We find Coulomb, Ohm, and Ampere mentioned in the text as well, We've found little about Van Rees who was professor of mathematics and experimental philosophy at the University of Utrecht between 1831 and 1867. (Univ of Groningen website). An early reaction to news of Faraday's theory which clearly spread quickly. It is unclear if this was an offprint or originally issued in this format.

Philadelphia: John Sartain & Co, 1852. First English Edition. Disbound. Good. First English Edition. A non-contiguous assemblage of material from Sartain's Union Magazine and Godey's Lady's Book from 1851 and 1852. The volume, missing the front board, would benefit from being disassembled and rebound in it's component parts - half title pages are mis-matched, engravings are found in odd places, etc. We have not collated this volume and cannot guarantee completeness of the other articles, engravings, etc other than to note that the Verne and Thoreau articles noted in this description are present and complete, and that the issue title pages are also present, hence the pricing at well below "market values". There are numerous other interesting items in this assemblage including an early poem with color plate, Godey engravings, etc etc. Disbound. Contains 2 literary giants in original publications before they were well known - Jules Verne, and Henry David Thoreau. The Verne pie ... Read more

Cleveland, Ohio: The Arthur Westbrook Company, 1900. Later printing. Later printing. [2], ii, [5]-201 pages. 5 x 7 inches. Decorated wrappers. Wear to extremities, paper browned. Given the fragility of the binding, a remarkable survival. One of many reprints of this work done during the late 19th/early 20th century. This specific edition is not called out by Taves and Michaluk in their long list of reprints, although Westbrook is noted as one of many reprints issued during the 1900 period. This particular edition is also not found in OCLC/Worldcat. A nice addition for the completest or scholarly collection.
