Erste lateinische Ausgabe. – Poggendorff II, 247. Bierens de Haan 3490. Wheeler Gift 276. – "Primarily a lecturer and author, Musschenbroek … devised many of his experiments, in the process consulting records of other experimenters, among them those of the Accademia del Cimento … The experiments can be studied in Musschenbroek’s books, which contain many fine illustrations; they deal with the mechanics of rigid bodies, air pressure, heat, cohesion, capillarity, phosphorescence, magnetism, and electricity. Many of these experiments have become classics in elementary instruction. One of the better-known apparatuses is the pyrometer … first described in the Tentamina" (DSB IX, 595). – Vorderes Gelenk gebrochen, fliegendes Blatt lose, Titel gestempelt, gebräunt, gering fleckig. – Mod.
