<s id="N1005B">DATA: I 1 risulterebbe posteriore ad O 12 (1779-1780), assorbendo letteralmente l’ap-<lb/>
pendice di quest’ultimo, e presentando in più varianti ed aggiunte: l’uso costante <lb/>
ed esclusivo dell’Elettrometro a fili, l’identità di espressioni generiche usate in <lb/>
I 1 e nell’Appendice di O 12 per quanto riguarda i propositi di interpretazione <lb/>
dei fenomeni in oggetto, e quindi la totale assenza di richiami alla teoria ed <lb/>
applicazione del Condensatore, farebbero ritenere I 1 anteriore, non solo ai la-<lb/>
vori del V. sugli Elettrometri a pagliette (1787), ma forse anche alla Memoria <lb/>
sul Condensatore. </s><s id="N1006B">Comunque, gli accenni contenuti nella nota (d) del Mns. I 1, <lb/>
riguardanti la possibilità che il solo contatto basta forse a sbilanciare il fluido <lb/>
elettrico, e le esperienze relative, sono sicuramente anteriori di parecchi anni <lb/>
al 1792, come il V. stesso dichiara in una sua <ref>lettera al Van Marum in data <lb/>
11 Ottobre 1792 (pubblicata al N° VIII (B). Vol. I, pag. 136)</ref>.</s> </p>
