19 Baddeley, Paul Frederick Hervy ): Whirlwinds and dust-storms of India : an investigation into the law of wind and revolving storms at sea : with an addendum containing practical hints on sanitary measures required for the European soldier in India (plates)
London Bell and Daldy 1860 1st Edition Hardcover Fair No Jacket 
London: Bell and Daldy, 1860 16 B&W plates plus 3 diagrams, one folding. de-assessioned from the library of the American Museum of Natural History. Paul Frederick Hervy Baddeley, a surgeon in the Bengal Army published several studies on the nature and physics of whirlwinds and invented a cyclone compass for use at sea. Baddeley proposed that storms, whirlwinds and waterspouts, and all kindred phenomena, were caused by an electric meteor in the form of cylindrical columns, working together in a spiral manner, and possessing rotatory and progressive motions per se ipsos; emendating from the higher regions and traversing the earth's surface. He believed that his 'electrical meteors' are not merely discharges of electricity, but 'a permanent indestructible form of imponderable matter, hitherto undescribed, occupying the higher regions of the sky and liable... to be diverted downward to the earth.' 'Whirlwinds and Dust Storms of India' was published in two volumes, text and plates. I am including a modern reprint of the text and so far I've been unable to locate an original copy. Text of this volume is 'fair,' considerable foxing and some short closed tears along lower edge of pages. Several pages are detached but all are present. Folding diagram has split along folds. Endpapers are probably a relining. Brown cloth boards with gold-stamped titles and an embossed decorative frame on front board and cyclone compass illustrations on rear board are rubbed at extremities with some loss of material. Beyond scarce.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fair/No Jacket. 12" x 8.25". Ex-Library. First Edition.
