Primary Sources

These are primary sources from the Encyclopædia Britannic ( ).  Each link is followed by a description from the encyclopedia explaining the object and its history. 



A Watchportable timepiece that has a movement driven either by spring or by electricity and that is designed to be worn or carried in the pocket.


A conduit channel or pipe for conveying water or other fluid or for carrying out certain other purposes, such as protecting electric cables.


Apparatus designed by Joseph Priestley for the generation and storage of electricity, from an engraving by Andrew Bell for the first edition of Encyclopædia Britannica (1768–71)

By means of a wheel connected by string to a pulley, the machine rotated a glass globe against a “rubber,” which consisted of a hollow piece of copper filled with horsehair. The resultant charge of static electricity, accumulating on the surface of the globe, was collected by a cluster of wires (m) and conducted by brass wire or rod (l) to a “prime conductor” (k), a hollow vessel made of polished copper. Metallic rods could be inserted into holes in the conductor “to convey the fire where-ever it is wanted.”


Basic electric circuit, with switch, battery, and lamp.
