Holtz Machine

Holtz Machine is one of the earlier forms of electrical machines for the separation of electricity, and the production of such at high pressure or potential. The best modern form is, however, due to Wirnshurst, whose machine is described in detail; it is thus unnecessary to explain the Holtz machine, except to rertiark that it works upon the same principles of induction and accumulation of charges, but is less effective than the Wirnshurst machine.
