MICHAEL FARADAY'S PERCEPTION book
Michael Farday was the greatest experimental scientist of the nineteenth century. He was born just over two hundred years ago (22 September 1791), the son of a blacksmith. As a boy, with a fascination for science, Faraday learned to see and question by reading customers' books while he was apprenticed to a kind and generous bookbinder, Mr Riebau, in London. He also became interested in art and learned perspective drawing, later contributing to the new artscience of photography.
