First Edition. xxvi, 657 pp; 24 figs. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket (price-clipped). 'A monumental pioneering study of Newton's influence on British (including American) and Dutch experimental physics during the 18th century, especially through his Opticks and the famous 'Queries' appended to this work. Includes substantial discussions of the writings of Boerhaave, 'sGravesande, Desaguliers and Hales in particular, in addition to the history of 18th-century electricity. Here, Franklin's importance as an electrical theorizer and not merely the inventor of the lightning rod is securely established' (Home no. 370). [a.c.]. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 16211
