Contemporary panelled calf, foot of one spine and one corner worn, upper joints cracking at foot, one small hole in leather owing to zealous use of a blind tool, a nice set. Early signature of J. Brandreth of Trinity College, Cambridge, on front free endpapers. [1] FIRST EDITION. After the Spring and Weight of the Air, Boyle continued to devise experiments on air. In this first continuation, he describes the second English air-pump, constructed like the first by himself and Robert Hooke. He investigated sound, magnetic force and frictional heat in a vacuum; he also confirmed the results of Pascal?s famous experiment on the Puy-de-Dôme. Wing B3934. Fulton 16.[2] FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH (from the Latin). The first description of the double air-pump, the third air-pump in England, devised and constructed by Denis Papin, who had brought it with him from France. It had the great advantage of two barrels so arranged that, as the air became exhausted, the resistance offered to the ascent of one piston was nearly balanced by the force with which it compelled the other to descend. It is clear from this book that Boyle and Papin worked together for almost four years. Wing B3935. Fulton 18. [3] Third edition of Boyle?s book on his original experiments on air, his first scientific work and the one on which his fame rests. This edition, like the second, includes his controversial tracts against Linus and Hobbes, the former provoking an attack to which Boyle wrote a defence that contained ?Boyle?s law?, first published in the second edition. Wing B4000. Fulton 15. See Horblit 15, PMM 143, and the Norman catalogue 300 for the second edition. Neville I, p. 192, has the same combination of works as are present here.
