Title page of William Gilbert's 'De Magnete'

Title page of the second edition (1628) of William Gilbert's Tractatus sive physiologia nova de magnete, magneticisque corporibus et magno magnete tellure ... (Stettin: typis Gotzianis; sumptibus Ioh. Hallervordij). William Gilbert (1544-1603) was a pioneering natural philosopher, physicist and physician, whose experimental studies were greatly admired by the founder Fellows of the Royal Society. De Magnete was his most important work; first published in 1600, it sets out Gilbert's findings that the Earth is a large magnetic sphere, with an iron centre, and that compass needles point to the north magnetic pole.

Original: engraving. 1628
