[4] 33 engraved plates. The Atlas volume of Pouillet's account of physics and meteorology complete with the important fold-out Plate 33 backed onto linen: 'Configuration de L'Equateur Magnetique' from observations taken in the Corvette le Coquille between 1822 and 1825 'Par M.L.I. Duperry Commandant de L'Expedition'. This copy was owned by the Medical Society, Edinburgh with oval stamps to the rear of the plates and to the title page. The book has been nicely rebacked using the original decorated calf spine over pebbled cloth with new endpapers and some fold marks to the half-title. The most attractive plates are browned but present, with a closed tear to Plate 32.
