Details
OHM, Georg Simon (1789-1854). Die galvanische Kette, mathematisch bearbeitet. Berlin: T. H. Riemann, 1827.

First edition of a pioneering work in the development of electrical science, containing the first fully developed presentation of Ohm's theory of electricity. Die galvanische Kette establishes the basis for Ohm’s Law, the ‘fundamental law of electrical circuits’ (Dibner), which states that the current passing through a conductor is proportional to the voltage over the resistance (electromotive force equals current times resistance). Dibner Heralds 63; Grolier/Horblit 81; Norman 1607; PMM 289.

Octavo (204 x 121mm). Folding engraved plate, advertisement leaf (faint scattered spots). Contemporary half sheep over marbled boards, green lettering piece gilt (small chip at head of spine, extremities lightly rubbed); housed in a modern green cloth box. Provenance: 19th-century owner inscription erased on endpaper.
