Recherches sur l'Identité des Forces chimiques et électriques. Traduit de l'Allemand par Marcel de Serres.


Paris, J.G. Dentu, 1813. Contemp. hcalf. Spine gilt and with gilt lettering. (6),XX,258,(2) pp. and 1 plate. A few faint brownspots. Internally fine. ¶ Very scarce first French edition of Oersteds main work in theoretical chemistry and dynamical physics, containing the main statements of his"Naturphilosophie" which guided him to his later discoveries, and contains the germ of his epochal discovery of electromagnetism eight year later in 1820. All over in nature the same force is active and matter is dependent on two fundamental forces, a repelling and an attractive force, manifesting itself in different forms such as electricity, magnetism, chemical actions, heat and light. he proposes that experiments should be made whether electricity in one of its most latent forms could act on the magnetic bodies as such - his experiments of 1820 established this connection in the form proposed here i.e. electricity in its galvanic form.

This French edition (translated from the German "Ansicht der chemischen Naturgesetze...", 1812) was published when Oersted received an offer from Marcel de Serres of translating it. Oersted himself took part in the translation or adaptation which was necessay, on account of the great difference in the opinions that might be presupposed among French and German readers. The title was altered and so some of the content.
