Modern half brown morocco, paste-paper boards, blind- and gilt-stamped spine labels, raised bands. Fine. FIRST EDITION in German, complete. This is the most advanced textbook on Cosmic Physics and Meteorology of its time. "His acclaimed textbook on physics and meteorology, Elements de physique experimentale et de meteorologie, was published in four parts. Also, it was translated into German by Johann Heinrich Jakob Muller, and published with the title, Lehrbuch der Physik und Meteorologie." – Wikip. "Pouillet's lectures — which were partially collected in his Elements de physique experimentale et de meteorologie (1927) and in the Lecons de physique de la Faculte des sciences (1828) — were widely read. (Pouillet published a popular account of Elements in 1850.) Although offering no spectacular novelties, they presented, in clear language, a survey of the state of the various branches of physics and of recent developments in them." – DSB XI, p. 111. / A much revised and expanded version of what was originally Pouillet's Elements de Physique Experimentale et de Meteorologie (1827), which Muller translated into Lehrbuch der Physik und Meteorologie (1842) and then expanded with the supplement Lehrbuch der Kosmischen Physik (1856). It was eventually taken to a ninth edition by Pfaundler (1886-98) and finally revised and expanded yet again by Pfaundler into this final edition including an additional volume, Magnetismus und Elektrizitat (1909), written by Walter Kaufmann (1871-1947) and Alfred Coehn (1863-1938). The final version unifies almost a century's worth of effort in various disciplines into a single textbook. (Inventory #: RW1212)
