Michael Faraday was without doubt one of the most important scientists of the nineteenth century; His discoveries of electromagnetic rotation and electromagnetic induction laid the foundations of the modern electricity industry. Almost 75% of the letters in Volume 3 were previously unpublished. During this period he discovered the magneto-optical effect and diamagnetism, allowing him to argue for his views on the nature of matter.
