Magnificent Vintage English Mahogany Stick Barometer The Atlas Torricelli 1643

Magnificent Vintage English Mahogany Stick Barometer The Atlas Torricelli 1643


Magnificent vintage english mahogany stick barometer the atlas torricelli 1643. Magnificent vintage english mahogany stick barometer the atlas torricelli model 1643. It measures about 46 1/2″ long, 6 11/16″ wide at the top trim and 1 5/8 deep.

Wonderful solid mahogany with ornate pattern. There is 1 small piece of wood trim missing on the side near the base, otherwise essentially perfect – check my photos. The glass tubing is all fine. Evangelista torricelli (1608-1647) was an italian physicist and mathematician, best known for his invention of the barometer. Torricelli was born on 15 october in 1608 in faenza in the province of ravenna, then part of the papal states, the firstborn child of gaspare torricelli and caterina angetti.

His father was a textile worker and the family was very poor. Seeing his talents, his parents sent him to be educated under the care of his uncle, jacobo, a camaldolese monk, who first ensured that his nephew was given a sound basic education.

He then entered young torricelli into a jesuit college in 1624, possibly the one in faenza itself, to study mathematics and philosophy until 1626, by which time his father, gaspare, had died. The uncle then sent torricelli to rome to study science under the benedictine monk benedetto castelli, professor of mathematics at the collegio della sapienza (now known as the sapienza university of rome).

In 1632, shortly after the publication of galileo’s dialogues of the new science, torricelli wrote to galileo of reading it with the delight … Of one who, having already practiced all of geometry most diligently … And having studied ptolemy and seen almost everything of tycho brahe, kepler and longomontanus, finally, forced by the many congruences, came to adhere to copernicus, and was a galileian in profession and sect. The vatican condemned galileo in june 1633, and this was the only known occasion on which torricelli openly declared himself to hold the copernican view. Aside from several letters, little is known of torricelli’s activities in the years between 1632 and 1641, when castelli sent torricelli’s monograph of the path of projectiles to galileo, then a prisoner in his villa at arcetri.

Although galileo promptly invited torricelli to visit, he did not accept until just three months before galileo’s death. During his stay, however, he wrote out the fifth day of galileo’s discourses. After galileo’s death on 8 january 1642, grand duke ferdinando ii de’ medici asked him to succeed galileo as the grand-ducal mathematician and professor of mathematics at the university of pisa. In this role he solved some of the great mathematical problems of the day, such as finding a cycloid’s area and center of gravity.

He also designed and built a number of telescopes and simple microscopes; several large lenses, engraved with his name, are still preserved in florence. On 11th june, 1644, he famously wrote in a letter to michelangelo ricci. Noi viviamo sommersi nel fondo d’un pelago d’aria. We live submerged at the bottom of an ocean of air. Torricelli died in florence on 25 october 1647, a few days after having contracted typhoid fever, and was buried at the basilica of san lorenzo. The asteroid 7437 torricelli was named in his honor.

He left all his belongings to his adopted son alexander. Torricelli’s chief invention was the mercury barometer, which arose from solving a practical problem.

Pump makers of the grand duke of tuscany attempted to raise water to a height of 12 meters or more, but found that 10 meters was the limit with a suction pump (as recounted in galileo’s dialogue). Torricelli employed merc, fourteen times more dense than water. In 1643 he created a tube approximately one meter long, sealed at the top, filled it with merc, and set it vertically into a basin of merc. The column of merc fell to about 76 cm, leaving a torricellian vacuum above.

As we now know, the column’s height fluctuated with changing atmospheric pressure; this was the first barometer. The discovery of the principle of the barometer has perpetuated his fame (”torricellian tube”, “torricellian vacuum”).

The torr, a unit of pressure used in vacuum measurements, is named after him.

This is a very good 150-year-old mercurial banjo barometer for restoration. It is the tulip style made in england between 1850 and 1880, i estimate. These are very hard to find now; i found this one over 20 years ago.
You can see the price the dealer had on it; i didn’t pay that! This barometer can be restored to excellent condition without great difficulty. You can find all the parts you need for the price you choose.

As you can see, the case needs some relatively minor vaneer work. Also at the top and bottom, 1.5 inch wide pieces of the case are loose all the way through and will have to be reglued. This is a common problem as the core of the case was originally made of glued- up boards. The top hygrometer is completely missing, but the very valuable thermometer is complete. The mercury tube is missing but the rest of the operating parts are there.

This is a great antique barometer which you can restore at a reasonable cost and enjoy for years to come. Optional/additional mercury tube: the original mercury tube was broken but i can provide you with a partially filled tube and enough mercury to fill it for $55. I will provide a filled tube for $95.

I would pack these carefully within the case but i cannot guarantee their safe arrival. You should enjoy bring this great barometer back to fine condition.
