A mercury barometer consists of a glass column marked off in inches. The top end of this glass tube is closed, and the other end rests in a small cup of mercury, called a cistern. A column of mercury resides inside the upright glass tube.

Mercury barometers are often used today in physics classes. The author traces the history of cistern or stick, angle, marine, station, Fitzroy and two-liquid barometers, with the help of nearly illustrations, and gives advice on how they should be handled and maintained.

Cistern tubes were fitted into stick barometers and the reading was taken directly from the tube and a corresponding scale.

A barometer is a scientific instrument that is used to measure air pressure in a certain environment. Pressure tendency can forecast short term changes in the weather. Many measurements of air pressure are used within surface weather analysis to help find surface troughs, pressure systems and frontal boundaries.

Barometers and pressure altimeters (the most basic and common type of altimeter. Overall, this book is enjoyable by people who like this many pictures, just to see what the barometers looked like in general, and for people just wanting to understand more about mercury barometers.
