Our modern society cannot function without electricity. While enjoying the convenience of electric lights, air conditioning, telephones, and internet every day, have you ever wondered how scientists figured all these out?
In the book The Prologue of Electrical Age, we present the history of electrical study from 1600 to 1900 through 18+ important yet beautiful scientific instruments. Using accurate and photorealistic computer graphics (CG) renderings, we strive to restore the former glories of these instruments, and give detailed descriptions of how they worked and the famous electrical discoveries associated with these instruments.
The text author of this book is Prof. Guosheng Wu at Tsinghua University, a famous scholar and book author of the history of science in China.
