Caption: Engraving of the interior of the study used by Michael Faraday, English physicist and chemist, (1791 - 1867). Faraday is best known for his experiments on the nature of electricity, which resulted in the invention of the dynamo and the formation of his laws of electrolysis. His greatest accomplishment was his work on electromagnetism, which led to the development of field theory by James Maxwell. As a young man Faraday worked under Sir Humphry Davy at the Royal Institution. In 1825, Faraday discovered benzene. Wood engraving from Jones, H. B. , The Life and Letters of Faraday. London, 1870.
