Charles Cléophas Person (1801-1884), French physician, transformed into researcher of physical sciences and a well-known teacher.
In 1843 he won by competition the chair of medical physics at the Faculté de Médecine de Paris, with a thesis about the general laws of molecular action and analysis and discussion of their action on physiological and pathological phenomena. He also served as professor of physics at the Faculté
des Sciences at Besançon (1851-1856); during this same period he was dean of the faculty. Person retired en 1856 and was appointed honorary professor. In 1836 he was elected member of the Académie de Stanislas (Nancy) and in 1851 chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur.
Person wrote over 35 papers, booklets and books in the areas of physiology, physics, medicine, thermodynamics, thermometry, and astronomical phenomena, etc.
This is his least technical book and a nicely illustrated guide to mid-19th century physics.
The book is in good condition, with some browning to some pages, and has 26 folding engraved plates.
The binding is somewhat at the top of the spines and along the joints. Books hold firm.
A rare set.

EXCELLENTThanks for your evaluation, much appreciated. Mike
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Het aangeboden boek mist 22 (!) pagina's. Deze omissie was niet in de beschrijving vermeld. Het is ongeloofwaardig dat de verkoper (dr. nota bene) dit niet opgemerkt heeft !!!
Frits BooyI have apologised fully to the buyer and without argument provided a 100% refund including shipping. I find the comment a little harsh, but accept -- as I informed the buyer -- that the mistake was mine. It was of course unintentional. Michael
