Experiments on galvanism with frogs
A B is a plate electrical machine; C the prime conductor; D a brass ball held at a distance of two or three inches from the prime conductor by an assistant; W the experimenter [possibly Wilkinson], with a prepared frog, E, on a plate, and touching the muscles with a dissecting knife. As often as a spark passes from C to D, the muscles of the frog are thrown into action, even at a distance of two or three feet from the machine, with which it is perfectly disconnected. Illustration from Elements of galvanism, in theory and practice, by Charles Henry Wilkinson (London, 1804) the 'Lecturer on Galvanism in Soho-square'.
