Most widely held works by Gaston Tissandier
A history and handbook of photography by Gaston Tissandier( Book )

37 editions published between 1876 and 2013 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The wealth of illustrations makes this a very important book. Two photoglyphic engravings by Talbot which represent one of only about four publications with these prints; the Pumphrey plates with his detailed ad help pinpoint the prices charged for collotype printing at this time; the very unusual Amand-Durand relief heliographs of diatoms, a type of printing not usually associated with this firm; and the photogravure by Leitch, who used Garnier's method in England. These coupled with Talbot's and his son's texts regarding photography and photoglyphic engraving, make this a most important work."--Hanson Collection catalog, p. 59

Extrait : ""La découverte de la photographie comptera parmi les plus merveilleuses applications de la science moderne ; elle est due au génie de Niepce et de Daguerre. Nous dirons les obstacles que ces ingénieux esprits ont dû vaincre pour conquérir au prix des plus rudes efforts la solution d'un problème longtemps qualifié d'utopie ; nous ferons voir ainsi de quelle persévérance l'inventeur doit s'armer pour atteindre son but.""À PROPOS DES ÉDITIONS LIGARANLes éditions LIGARAN proposent des versions numériques de qualité de grands livres de la littérature classique mais également des livres

The history and practice of aerostation by Tiberius Cavallo( Book )

Publisher description: Friedrich A. Hayek is regarded as one of the preeminent economic theorists of the twentieth century, as much for his work outside of economics as for his work within it. During a career spanning several decades, he made contributions in fields as diverse as psychology, political philosophy, the history of ideas, and the methodology of the social sciences. Bruce Caldwell--editor of The Collected Works of F. A. Hayek--understands Hayek's thought like few others, and with this book he offers us the first full intellectual biography of this pivotal social theorist. Caldwell begins by providing the necessary background for understanding Hayek's thought, tracing the emergence, in fin-de-siecle Vienna, of the Austrian school of economics--a distinctive analysis forged in the midst of contending schools of thought. In the second part of the book, Caldwell follows the path by which Hayek, beginning from the standard Austrian assumptions, gradually developed his unique perspective on not only economics but a broad range of social phenomena. In the third part, Caldwell offers both an assessment of Hayek's arguments and, in an epilogue, an insightful estimation of how Hayek's insights can help us to clarify and reexamine changes in the field of economics during the twentieth century. As Hayek's ideas matured, he became increasingly critical of developments within mainstream economics: his works grew increasingly contrarian and evolved in striking--and sometimes seemingly contradictory--ways. Caldwell is ideally suited to explain the complex evolution of Hayek's thought, and his analysis here is nothing short of brilliant, impressively situating Hayek in a broader intellectual context, unpacking the often difficult turns in his thinking, and showing how his economic ideas came to inform his ideas on the other social sciences
