History of the Bubble or Spirit Level

Posted in Level with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 12, 2009 by mlevel

The spirit level was invented by Melchisedech Thevenot, the Royal Librarian to King Louis XIV of France, who was an amateur scientist and patron of many scientists and mathematicians. Thevenot invented the instrument some time before February 2, 1661. This date can be very accurately established from Thevenot’s correspondence with scientist Christiaan Huygens. Within a year of this date the inventor circulated details of his invention to others, including Robert Hooke in London and Vincenzo Viviani in Florence. It is occasionally argued that these bubble levels did not come into widespread use until the beginning of the eighteenth century, the earliest surviving examples being from that time, but Adrien Auzout had recommended that the Académie Royale des Sciences take “levels of the Thevenot type” on its expedition to Madagascar in 1666.

In the 1920s, Henry Ziemann the founder of Empire Level, invented the modern level with a single vial. Since then, there has been no major improvements to the conventional level until Matthew Montgomery of the Montgomery Level Company engineered a new arced vial which allows any professional or homeowner with minimal skills to calculate the slope of an angle, making construction or home-improvement jobs faster and more accurate. The new generation slope level simply gives the angle in seconds. The slope levels are calibrated, waterproof and affordable.
