Electrical World and Engineer Magazine April 14 1900Electrical World and Engineer Magazine April 14 1900  I have about 20 issues of this magazine in similar condition.  The first 40 or so pages are all advertising.  So are the last 10 - 15.  The middle discusses cutting edge developments in the emerging field of electricity and engineering.  There are ads for all sorts of rare things one could only wish to find.  There are fans, motors, steam engines, light bulbs, arc lamps, telephone and telegraphy related, tools and much more.  The ads near the end mostly deal with larger things like steam engines, locomotives and large pieces of machinery and tools like milling machines, lathes and the like.  Most all are in very nice condition noting the covers are very fragile and some are loose.  The interiors on all are nice.

Telegraph & Telephones




Camelback Telegraph KeyCamelback Telegraph Key & Receiver   A nice example of a hard to find early telegraph key.  The overall condition is very nice.  I see no maker marks, but the design of the sounder cast iron frame with its rounded casting is distinctive and a bit different.  Nice!!

Zeitsinnapparat by Spindler & Hoyer, GöttingenZeitsinnapparat Scientific Psychological Recording Device by Spindler & Hoyer, Göttingen   It is a large and graphic instrument at over 28" across.

This unusual and large scientific apparatus was designed to measure & record optical and acoustic stimuli.   There is an ID tag on one top arm with the manufacturers name Spindler & Hoyer, Göttingen. It dates from approx. 1900 and is German.

Descriptions online make this type if machine sound like a forerunner of the polygraph machine.   Information also refers to its use in the study of time. There are numerous line drawings of similar devices using the word Zeitsinnapparat online that all lead to foreign or German sites.  Here is a link to one of those.

It is unclear how exactly it would work, but it seems it was meant to be driven by a motor and would be hooked up to a drum like recording machine similar to those used on steam indicators.

Very graphic, and an interesting and important part of the history of Psychological study.  Nice!!
