By Sheldon Renan

Written within the 1960's this publication is a complete learn of avant-garde and experimental cinema courting again to the infancy of the cinema. Names like Stan Brakhage and Jordan Belson who've had a measurable effect on smooth cinema in addition to the extra sensational auteurs like Andy Warhol, Kenneth Anger and Jack Smith are mentioned and evaluated. In our age of video and video discs, a lot of the publication turns out dated however the chronicling of the evolution of contemporary method and thematic fabric is thorough and interesting. the various discoveries of those pioneers are common methods in today's cinema.
Renan's ebook on underground movie is a vintage "introduction" to the yankee avant garde. great things on Brakhage, was once most likely a gem in its day. name sums it up, simply brief "blurbs" on a few lovely now imprecise filmmakers... a pleasant spouse.

Methods and apparatus for the determination of low vapour pressures are reported by Milazzo [31]. He shows that the McLeod manometer yields very satisfactory results with pressures in the range of 10 to 10-5 tnrr. As the experimental execution of the static method is rather difficult, particularly a t high temperatures, whilst pressure control presents no difficulty with the accurate regulators now available, the dynamic method will generally be chosen. I t is important that the substance to be examined should be checked for purity.

The thermometer is immersed in a little mercury in the protecting tube H , which has a fused-on dropping cap diverting the downflowing condensate from the thermometer enclosure. The mercury thread is surrounded by condensing vapour. The thermometer scale is illuminated from behind and is read through the layer of condensate, estimating to l/lOth of a scale division; no difficulty will be experienced in doing this if the upper part of the ebullioscope is etched smooth before use with 1% hydrofluoric acid for 2 minutes, and is occasionally boiled out with soap solution.
