Papers of Charles Wheatstone: notes on the measurement of electric potential

Notes compiled by Charles Wheatstone on the measurement of electric potential in an experimental apparatus consisting of rotating electrodes, and in circuits comprising Standard cells and gas batteries; experimental notes on Standard cells applying an apparently innovatory methodology described by the German physicist, Johann Christian Poggendorf (1796-1877).
