From the earliest times wise men have said there is nothing new under the sun. This statement may seem an exaggeration when applied to human conceptions, yet a study of some of the innovations shows that in many cases the main idea which guided the inventor had already been considered by one or other of his predecessors whose researches had failed to reach completion through lack of materials or other circumstances.
