The author, in his preface, deals tolerantly with the many and varied theories con-
cerning magnetic bodies, instancing many of the most notable from those of Pliny and
Nicander to that of Robert Norman. He is however particularly emphatic concerning
the production of perpetual motion by means of the load-stone, he finding it “by the

experience of many ingenious practices ... unpossible to be done." 115 Röntgen Rays. Righi (A.). Sulla Propagazione dell' Elletricità nei Gas attraversati dai Raggi di Röntgen. Roy. 4to., illustrations; sd.
