hemispheres from which the air had been withdrawn. Guericke also describes the invention of the first electrical machine, which generated the first visible and audible electric charges" (Honeyman). "In 1650 Guericke constructed the first air pump, which he used to create a vacuum in various containers. He showed that sound would not travel in a vacuum, and furthermore that a vacuum would not support combustion or animal life. In 1654 Guericke gave an impressive demonstration in front of the emperor Ferdinand III, of the force of atmospheric pressure. Two identical copper hemispheres 12 feet (3.66 m) in diameter were joined together. When the air was pumped out, 16 horses could not pull them apart although when the air reentered the hemispheres they fell apart by themselves. He also showed that 20 men could not hold a piston in a cylinder once the air had been evacuated from one end of it... In 1663 he built the first electrical friction machine by rotating a sulfur globe against a cloth... The results of these and other experiments were published in his Experimental nova Magdeburgica de vacuo spatio (1672; New Magdeburg Experiments Concerning Empty Space)" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists). The magnificent large folding plate of the great public experiment with the horses and hemispheres is one of the most celebrated and reproduced images in all of science.

tio illo Immenso, quod t�m intra quam extra eas funditur. Folio (313 x 196 mm). Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label, spine gilt in compartments with urn and flower centre tool, pineapples in corners, sides ruled in gilt with a double fillet, curl-marbled endpapers, red edges. Housed in a brown flat back cloth solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Extra engraved title, engraved portrait, 2 double-page engraved plates (including that of the famous Magdeburg experiment), 20 large engravings in the text (7 full-page, plate XVIII repeated). Early ownership inscription of Michele Colombo to front free endpaper verso. Minor wear to extremities, portrait slightly browned, small ink stain to fore-edge of sig. D1, very slightly affecting leaves either side but not the text, an excellent copy in a handsome binding. First edition of one of the most remarkable books in the history of physics and technology. Guericke describes and illustrates with handsome engravings his inventions of the air-pump, the earliest electric generating machine, the water-barometer, and the air-balance. Guericke constructed his first air-pump some time before 1654, when he gave his first demonstration at Magdeburg of the ability of the hemispheres with a vacuum inside them to resist two teams of horses working to pull them apart; the experiment is illustrated here in the often reproduced folding plate. The experiment demonstrated that air had weight, and Guericke was further able to determine the density of air. He also proved experimentally the propagation of sound through air and, with his electrical machine, first clearly demonstrated the phenomenon of electrical repulsion. "Copies of this first edition are now very rare. This remarkable work on experimental philosophy ranks next to Gilbert's in the number and importance of the electrical discoveries described. Electric conduction and repulsion, the discharging power of points, the dissipation of charge by flames, the light due to electrification, the crepitating noises of small sparks are all recognized" (Wheeler Gift, 170).

Einband in neuerer Zeit unter Verwendung des alten Materials neu gebunden, dabei Vorsätze erneuert und 2 Tafeln (leider auch die Klapptafel mit dem 16-Pferde-Experiment) als Faksimile eingebunden; das gestochene Titelporträt liegt ebenfalls als Faksimile bei; gestochener Titel mit professionell hinterlegten Randläsuren; insgesamt sauberes und nur gering fleckiges Exemplar. O. von Guericke (1602-1686) aus Magdeburger Patrizierfamile, studierter Jurist und Mathematiker, machte in Leiden Bekanntschaft mit den Schriften Galilieis und Keplers; zurück in Magdeburg (1626) wurde er Mitglied im Ratskollegium, später Diplomat und langjähriger Bürgermeister. Auf dem Regensburger Reichstag von 1654 stellte er den versammelten Fürsten und dem Kaiser erste Versuche mit einer Luftpumpe vor, die der Jesuit Caspar Schott, Würzburger Mathematiker und Physiker, auf Geheiß des Kurfürsten Johann Philipp von Schönborn ausführlich darstellte. Seine Beschreibung waren die Grundlage für die Experimente von Robert Boyle und Robert Hooke. G.s Interesse galt der Kosmologie, insbesondere der Frage, ob ein Raum ohne Vakuum vorstellbar sei; dementsprechend nehmen in diesem seinem Hauptwerk die philosophischen Überlegungen den weitaus größeren Platz ein und nur Buch 3 hat "Eigene Versuche" zum Gegenstand. G. vertrat gegenüber R. Descartes, Chr. Huygens und G. W. Leibniz die Anschauung eines leeren Raumes, so bestritt er z. B. die Auffassung, dass zwischen 2 Objekten kein Abstand existieren könne, ohne dass eine Substanz ihn bewirke. G.s hervorragende Stellung in der Geschichte der Naturwissenschaften begründet sich darin, dass er die Notwendigkeit des Experiment und damit das Primat der Empirie postuliert, welches die Theorie veri- oder falsifiziert: "Was (...) durch Erfahrung oder sinnliche Wahrnehmung bewiesen wird, muß jedem noch so wahrscheinlichen und blendenden Vernunftsschluß vorgezogen werden" (aus der Vorrede an den Leser). Neben Thermo- und Barometer gehört die Luftpumpe zu G.s wichtigsten Erfindungen als Techniker und wurde auch z. B. zur Grundlage der Entwickling der Damfmaschine. G. starb am 11. Mai 1686 in Hamburg. Poggendorff I, 971; Banse/Wollgast 62-68; Graesse III, 171.

❧Dibner, Heralds of Science 55; Evans, First Editions of Epochal Achievements in the History of Science 30; Horblit, One Hundred Books Famous in Science 44; Sparrow, Milestones of Science 90; Norman 952. "Otto von Guericke, German natural philosopher, produced what had been sought since antiquity-the vacuum. Inspired by the findings of Galileo, Pascal, and Torricelli, he conducted Magdeburg hemisphere experiments. By means of an air pump, he extracted the air from two hemispheres of copper which had been securely sealed and demonstrated that even sixteen horses pulling in opposite directions could not separate them. Experimenta nova (ut vocantu) Magdeburgica de vacuo spatio (1672) ranks next to Gilbert's [De magnete, 1611] in the number and importance of electrical discoveries described, for von Guericke was also an investigator in this field. He invented a machine by which he demonstrated the existence of electrical repulsions as well as electrical attractions." "Guericke's invention of the air pump grew out of his interest in the nature of space, particularly in Descartes's belief in the equivalence of space and matter and denial of the possibility of vacuum. Guericke suspected otherwise, and, after several false starts, managed to construct a hollow apparatus from which he evacuated the air with a suction pump, thus disproving Descartes's claims and resolving the old controversy between the vacuists and plenists. His discovery of the elasticity of air was the most important result of Guericke's experiments, as it led him to investigate the decrease of air density with height, to study the variations in air pressure corresponding to changes in weather (from which he was able to make barometric weather forecasts) and to experiment further with the phenomena connected with vacuums, especially the work capacity of air. The famous Magdeburg experiment of 1657, in which two eight-horse teams tried unsuccessfully to pull apart two copper hemispheres from which the air had been exhausted, is illustrated in the folding plate between pages 104 and 105. Guericke also sought to prove the magnetism of the earth and other celestial bodies by experimenting with a sphere made of sulfur, which he showed to possess the virtutes mundanae; i.e., powers of attraction and the ability to move other bodies. By rubbing the sphere and rotating it on a crank, Guericke was able to generate audible and visible sparks via static electricity; however, as he failed to identify these effects as special phenomena in their own right, considering them instead to be demonstrations of the properties of a celestial body, he cannot properly claim the invention of the first electrical machine."

Guericke proved the existence of a vacuum through his famous experiment at Magdeburg (illustrated by one of the double-page plates), in which two hemispheres of copper were fitted together, the air evacuated, and two teams of horses set to pull them apart, which they could not do. To create the vacuum, Guericke invented the air pump, and in the series of experiments that followed he demonstrated the elasticity and weight of air. He also constructed the first electrical generator and demonstrated electrostatic attraction and repulsion. As the Wheeler Gift catalogue remarks, 'this remarkable work on experimental philosophy ranks next to Gilbert's in the number and importance of the electrical discoveries described'.The experimental discoveries were in fact the consequence of Guericke's profound Copernican cosmological views on the nature and composition of space, which are set forth fully in this work.
