TitlePaper, 'An account of several experiments touching the seeming spontaneous asscention of water between two glasse planes' by Francis Hauksbee
DescriptionHauksbee describes experiments regarding the ascension of water between two glass planes and shares his observations. He writes: 'The several Experiments, which already hath been made in relation to the Spontaneous Ascent of Water in small Tubes, not only by my self, but several others, with much the same success, gave me the occasion of thinking, whether the Figure of the Vessel might, or might not, contribute to the oddness of the Appearance.'
