This is the first book to deal with the vast range of instruments and apparatus made and used during the exciting years of the nineteenth century, when modern science came of age. The varied, intricate, and often beautiful apparatus used in research and teaching during this important period is set in its scientific and historical context, and illustrated with over 440 plates of examples from European collections and contemporary engravings, including 30 color plates.
