t. "Hertz was the first to demonstrate experimentally that electromagnetic waves radiate in space at the speed of light, just as Maxwell had predicted in his Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism. Hertz determined that electromagnetic waves were longer than light waves and showed that they were in complete correspondence with the waves of light and heat in the transverse nature of their vibration and their susceptibility to reflection, refraction, and polarization." [Hook & Norman]. "Experimental proof by Hertz of the Faraday-Maxwell hypothesis that electrical waves and be projected through space was begun in 1887, eight years after Maxwell's death. The two main requirements were (a) a method of producing the waves, supposing that they existed, and (b) a method of detecting them once they were produced. Hertz found the first problem easy to solve. He used the oscillatory discharge of a condenser. Detection was much more difficult, because there then existed no means of detecting currents alternating at the high speed of these waves. Hertz in fact used an effect as old as the discovery of electricity itself-the electric spark. By inducing the waves to produce an electric spark at a distance, with no apparent connexion between the oscillator and the spark gap, and by moving the sparking apparatus so that the length of the spark varied, he proved beyond question the passage of electric waves through space."

1888, it relates qualitative experiments undertaken by Hertz, at the Karlsruhe Polytechnic, on the analogy between electric and light waves. Passing electric waves through huge prisms of hard pitch, he showed that they refract exactly as light waves do. He polarized electric waves by directing them through a grating of parallel wires, and he diffracted them by interrupting them with a screen with a hole in it. He reflected them from the walls of the room, obtaining interference between the original and the reflected waves. He focused them with huge concave mirrors, casting electric shadows with conducting obstacles. This is the first print appearance, preceding its appearance in Annalen der Physik (36, p. 769) because, at this point in his career, Hertz was sending his papers to Hermann von Helmholtz to communicate to the Berlin Academy for quick publication before sending them to Annalen der Physik. It was later collected with Hertz's other experimental and theoretical works on electricity in Untersuchungen uber die Ausbreitung der elektrischen Kraft (Leipzig, 1892), which expanded and clarified the electromagnetic theory of light that had been put forth by the British Physicist James Maxwell in 1884. Hertz's experiments with electromagnetic waves led to the development of the wireless telegraph and the radio. (D.S.B.) 11 pp. Octavo, orange paper wrappers, with title information printed to front. Ink ownership stamp of physicist and noted socialist Leo Arons ("Dr. LEO ARONS | Strassburg i. E."), whose scientific work was primarily focused on the empirical research of electrical phenomena that governed Maxwell's theory. Pamphlet is creased vertically. Covers are nicked along edges and show general light dust-soiling. Front cover is detached and has a couple of light pencil markings. Hertz offprints are rare.

"For Hertz his determination... of the velocity...was the most exciting moment in the entire sequence of experiments" (DSB).

Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1892.

a) unter der Annahme, daß solche Wellen existierten, eine Methode, mit der sie erzeugt werden konnten, und (b) eine Methode, sie festzustellen, wenn sie einmal erzeugt waren. Das erste Problem konnte Hertz leicht lösen. Er benutzte dazu die oszillatorische Entladung eines Kondensators. Das Empfangsproblem war viel schwieriger, weil man damals Ströme, deren Stärke sich mit solch hoher Geschwindigkeit änderte wie bei diesen Wellen, nicht registrieren konnte. Hertz benutzte dazu eine Erscheinung, die so alt war wie die Elektrizität selbst: den elektrischen Funken. Indem er die elektrischen Wellen einen Funken in einer Entfernung erzeugen ließ, die zwischen Oszillator und Funkensprung jede Verbindung ausschloß, und indem er den funkenerzeugenden Apparat (Oszillator) so bewegte, daß sich die Länge des Funkens veränderte, bewies er eindeutig den Durchgang von elektrischen Wellen durch den Raum [.] J.
