Caption: Carl August von Steinheil (1801-1870), German physicist, inventor, engineer and astronomer. Steinheil studied astronomy and became a professor of mathematics and physics at the University of Munich (1832 to 1849). During that period, his inventions included innovations in photography and telegraphy. From 1849, he worked on telegraphy in Austria, and from 1851 in Switzerland. In 1854, he founded an astronomical instrument making company. Artwork from 'Electricite' (1911) by French civil engineer Max de Nansouty (1854-1913), part of the 'Les merveilles de la science' series of 1867-1891 by Louis Figuier.
