Caption: Decade resistance box. Historical illustration of a decade resistance box from the late 19th century. It has six linear 'decades' and is based on the Wheatstone bridge principle. The six linear dials are labelled in multiples of ten. From left: 10,000ths, 1000ths, hundredths, tenths, units, and tens. This decade resistance box bears the imprint of French engineer Jules Carpentier (1851-1921). Artwork from 'Electricite' (1911) by Max de Nansouty, part of the 'Les merveilles de la science' series of 1867-1891 by Louis Figuier.
