The Hector Berlioz Website

Dissertation sur les Effets du Fluide Electrique introduit dans l'économie animale

by Louis Berlioz

This page presents three images of a dissertation by Dr Louis Berlioz, the composer’s father, which he presented to the Faculty of Medicine at Montpellier on 26 floréal an 8 [16 May 1800]; it was published by G. Izar et A. Ricard in Floréal an VIII [1800].

We are most grateful to Professor Peter Bloom who at our request authenticated the provenance of this dissertation.

The images were scanned from our own copy of the book, which we subsequently donated to Musée Hector-Berlioz at La Côte Saint-André in 2012.
