FIRST EDITION. 8 vo. Contemp. mottled calf, back richly gilt within compartments. xvi, 742, (2) pp. Nine folding engraved plates. A few signatures with browning; a very good, crisp copy. "While preparing for his medical degree, Sigaud attended the famous course of public lectures given by Abbé Nollet, who aroused in him such a lively interest in experimental science that Sigaud became first a tutor in philosophy and mathematics and then a demonstrator in experimental science at the Collége Louis-le-Grand. In 1760 he succeeded the Abbé Nollet in his chair at Louis-le-Grand. In 1770 Sigaud became a professor of surgery at the school of Saint-Côme. In 1872 he returned to Bourges, where, after four years, he obtained a chair in physics at the local collége." (D.S.B.). "Including a copious account of atmospherical electricity and lightning conductors, with original investigations by the author himself. He claims in the above work to have been the first to use glass plates with electrical machines in 1756, and describes an improved Leyden Jar constructed by him for measuring electricity." (Sotheran/Zeitlinger, 1st suppl., no. 3804). Wheeler Gift Cat. 505. Ronalds, p.475. Gartrell 491. Ekelöf Cat. 496. Bakken, p.107. N° de ref. de la librería 000362
