  Book Description / Synopsis:  

This rare manuscript of Michael Faraday’s Experimental Notes (known as Faraday’s Diary) is now available for the first time since 1936 by exclusive arrangement with The Royal Institution of Great Britain. Except for a single printing in the mid 1930’s, Faraday’s Diary has been unavailable to the scientific community until now.


These seven volumes (3,500 pages), bequeathed by Faraday to the Royal Institution of Great Britain, comprise the experimental investigations made by him during the years 1820-1862. This reproduction includes the complete first edition manuscript edited by Thomas Martin with index, photographs and thousands of illustrations by Faraday. 


"Faraday is generally held to be one of the greatest of all experimental philosophers. Nearly every science is in his debt: and some sciences owe their existence mainly to his work. The liquefaction of gases, benzene, electro-magnetic induction, specific inductive capacity, lines of force, magnetic conduction or permeability, the dark discharge, anode, cathode, magneto-optics, electro-chemical equivalent; all these terms suggest fundamental researches which he made, and many of them were called into existence in order to describe his discoveries." --Sir William H. Bragg, Director of the Laboratory of the Royal Institution (1932).
