Title page of William Gilberts De Magnete

Title page of the second edition of William Gilbert's De Magnete, published in 1628. The first edition appeared in 1600. Gilbert was an English physician and physicist, born in 1544 and died in 1603. De Magnete ("Concerning Magnets"), was a pioneering study in magnetism, which established Gilbert's reputation as a physicist. One of his great contributions was to suggest that the Earth was a large magnetic sphere & that a compass needle points not to the heavens, but to the magnetic poles on the earth. Joseph Priestly regarded him as "the father of modern electricity" and Galileo considered him to be the founder of experimentalism
