Description :

Small folio, pp. (xvi), 246, (1) colophon, 1 folding plate; pp. iv, 67, (1). Facsimile woodcut devices and illustrations in the text. Original limp vellum, cloth ties, uncut and the Notes partly unopened. Foxing on the endpapers as usual, but a fine copy. Limited edition of 250 copies on handmade Van Gelder paper. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH of the first work of experimental physics published in England. ?Gilbert, physician to Elizabeth I, gathered all known opinions relating to the magnet and put them to the test of experiment, thereby being the first to initiate the experimental method of science. He treated the attractive power of magnets, their orientation to the earth?s poles, variation and declination, use in navigation and proposed that the earth itself was a large magnet? Book II is devoted exclusively to electrical phenomena, the first ever published? (Dibner). For a full appreciation of Gilbert and this extraordinary book, see Stephen Pumfrey, Latitude & the Magnetic Earth (2002). The present beautiful edition was printed for the Gilbert Club, and reproduces the original woodcuts and type ornaments in facsimile. ?The better edition [the other is by Mottelay, New York 1893] is On the Magnet?, translated by Sylvanus P. Thompson (London, 1900). Originally an edition to mark the tercentenary of De Magnete, it preserves the layout of the Latin original and has useful notes, but is expensive and rare? (Pumfrey, p. 245). This copy is of the de luxe issue, bound together with the Notes in vellum. The Notes contains a bibliography of De Magnete and valuable notes on points in the text. Loosely inserted is the original 1-page prospectus. N° de réf. du libraire 2593
