Reflexions on the Motive Power of Fire - translations of Carnot's scientific manuscripts from the 1800s

£9.99

Product description

The status of Reflexions as a classic of science is beyond question. Yet this is the first full critical edition of the book to be published in English. It is based on a new translation of the text and also contains the first complete translation of Carnot's scientific manuscripts. In his introduction, Robert Fox places Carnot's manuscript in the economic, technological and scientific context of his time and his translations are accompanies by detailed commentaries based on his long familiarity with Carnot's work and the early history of thermodynamics generally.

Hardback book with dust cover in very good condition.
