Description

A very rare and exceptional electrical apparatus for medicine and experiments in physiology equipped with a time-movement switch and making it possible to regulate electrical intermittencies.

 

Gustave Trouvé developped his jewel of experimental physiology in 1878.

See the illustrated description given in La Nature the same year and my last one picture :

The present example is a very elegant portative example preserved in its original book-shape box in leather. The box bears the name “Dr. Joffroy”.

 

Despite two little damages at the ivory rule and the glass cage, splendid original condition. Furthermore, the clockwork works perfectly.
