Engraving taken from the 'Jubelband of Poggendorf's Cunnalen der Physik und Chemie, 1874' of Johann Christian Poggendorf (1796-1877). Poggendorf discovered that the difference in potential of two conductors may be measured by balancing it against a known difference of potential such as that of a voltaic cell.
