The VCO employed a unique, unorthodox topology in which the frequency was varied by electrically "interpolating" between two separate resonant circuits, even though it was still technically an implementation of monolithic silicon VCO IC technology.
Arguably, this work and further research by Professor Robert Meyer and his graduate students at the University of California at Berkeley appears to have ushered in a period of increased research on monolithic VCOs.

Joanna Baillie's psychological case study in aristocratic hatred, De Monfort (1768) was thought too alarming to have been written by a woman, while Elizabeth Inchbald's hugely successful Lovers' Vows (1798) was sufficiently subversive for Jane Austen to analyse some of its illicit potential in Mansfield Park (1814).

But he broke off his journey at Ratisbon, having visited only Munich: he experienced a nervous breakdown, probably due to an onslaught of Germanic guilt which he thought he had forever left behind, and began his return, stopping briefly at Vienna for an audience with Empress Maria Theresa.
Travelling incognito, Winckelmann had arrived in Trieste on June 1, 1768, and checked into the largest inn, to wait until a suitable ship departed for Rome.
