de l’imprimerie de Landriot, Clermont-Ferrand 1811, in 4 (26x20,5cm), xij, 275pp., Un Vol. relié.


First collected edition of these four papers read at the National Institute between 1804 and 1809 Full Vellum twentieth, smooth back. Part of title in red morocco. Marbled contemporary. These four papers are intended to use the barometer to measure the altitude and geographic and meteorological applications. Ramon had established the relationship between altitude, temperature and air pressure working on the proposals contained Laplace in his exposure of the world system. He was the first to apply his own method during his trips to Pyrrénées and in the Massif Central, this method was immediately followed by Arago, Humboldt and Biot. The book is also intended as a guide for specific measures based on the barometer. The submissions were reviewed and completed for this edition and the author has added a basic education. An index contains many pl. calculations (with some handwritten in pen annotations). --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
