By means of an elastic Fluid. pp.(584-677). 2 folding plates. [Bound with] AN ACCOUNT OF A PURE NATIVE CRYSTALISED NATRON or fossil alkaline Salt, which is found in the Country of Tripoli in Barbary: By Donald Monro. pp.(567-579) [Bound with] A LETTER FROM Mr R. E. Raspe to M. Maty. pp.(580-583). 2 folding copper plates. ... (1771).
3 vols in 1. Thin sm. 4to. Later wrapps,. faded. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society Volume 61. ODNB ... Cavendish made notes on an electrical fluid of mutually repellent particles to which he applied his understanding of heat and factitious airs. Cavendish rejected Franklin's model of electrical atmospheres round bodies, and distinguished between the fluid's variable compression (to account for degree of electrification) and its quantity (to describe electric charge).
