Thick large 8vo. xi, 595 pp. [actually in ff]. Maroon library buckram. Fine. Carlo Matteucci (1811 - 1868) was an Italian physicist and neurophysiologist who was a pioneer in the study of bioelectricity. Instigated by the work of Luigi Galvani (1737–1798) on bioelectricity, Matteucci began in 1830 a series of experiments which he pursued until his death in 1865. Using a sensitive galvanometer of Leopoldo Nobili, he was able to prove that injured excitable biological tissues generated direct electrical currents, and that they could be summed up by adding elements in series, like in Alessandro Volta's (1745-1827) electric pile. – Wikipedia. The price for this book is essentially for the cloth binding.
