A rare first edition physics book that includes discoveries of carbon dioxide and hydrogen combustion.

 

Sigaud de la Fond was an 18th-century professor of physics who is most-remembered for discovering that hydrogen combustion produces water. This book “Experiments on Different Kinds of Air” is a supplement to his earlier work “Elements of Physics”. The illustrations in this work show physics laboratories, tools, and experimentation. La Fond writes, in this book, that carbon dioxide is produced by animal respiration and microbial fermentation – something that hadn’t been discovered to this point.
