William Gilbert (1544-1603) was the most distinguished man of science in England during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, the father of electrical studies, and the first to consider the Earth as one vast spherical magnet. This was also the golden age of circumnavigations of the globe, of discoveries of new lands and new trade routes, and of the settling of new colonies. Giving the drama of Gilbert's discoveries, this book climaxes with a look at geomagnetism via the story of longitude schemes so crucial for today's seafarers.
