Descripción:

8vo, pp. iv, 408. Published quarterly. Sir David Brewster (1781-1868) was a natural philosopher, and educated at Edinburgh University. He became a co-editor of the Edinburgh Philosophical Journal (EPJ) in 1819, with mineralogist Robert Jameson (1774-1854). Together they edited the most prestigious and influential journal of its kind, albeit for a relatively short period, until 1826, when Brewster left and the journal was re-named The Edinburgh New Philosophical Journal. Jameson carried on with this journal until his death in 1854. The EPJ carried original articles, letters, and comments from some of the leading scientists and authorities of the day, including Charles Babbage, Humphry Davy, J. F. W. Herschel, Alexander Humboldt, William Scoresby, and Robert Stevenson, and James Watt. This volume contains 10 plates, of which two are folding, three are maps (one coloured), two are charts, and the rest illustrations of a scientific nature. Letters and articles include: "History of the origin of Mr. Watt's Improvements on the Steam-Engine. Contained in a Letter from the late James Watt."; "On the Colour of the Greenland Sea", by William Scoresby; "Account of a new Style of Engraving on Copper in alto relievo, invented by Mr. W. Lizars"; "On the Applications of a new Mode of Analysis to the Theory and Summation of certain extensive Classes of Series", by J. F. W. Herschel; "Account of Mr. Fresnel's Discoveries respecting the Inflexion of Light", etc. Freshly re-bound in very fine burgundy cloth and with new spine labels. Contents show some light foxing & sl. musty odor; else in good/good plus condition. N° de ref. de la librería
