Michael Faraday was without doubt one of the most important scientists of the nineteenth century; his discoveries of electromagnetic rotation and electro-magnetic induction laid the foundations of the modern electricity industry. Volume 2 covers the 1830s, a period when Faraday pursued the consequences of his discovery of electromagnetic induction and revised entirely the theories of electrochemistry and the nature of electricity. His correspondents include scientists of the day as well as antiquaries, military men, artists and politicians.
