About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for A Course of Lectures on Natural Philosophy and the Mechanical Arts. by YOUNG, Thomas..

Description:

58 plates (two are finely & brilliantly hand-colored) & diagrams in the text. xxiv, 796 pp.; xii, [iv], 738 pp. Two vols. Large 4to, cont. olive half-calf & marbled boards (minor foxing), spines gilt. London: J. Johnson, 1807. First edition, and a very lovely copy, of this important book, containing Young’s significant writings on optics, mechanics, hydrodynamics, physics, astronomy, the tides, etc., etc., etc. It is a course of lectures covering virtually the whole of theoretical science and technology. It includes his completed undulatory theory of light, with a description of his experimental demonstration of interference. In the lecture "On Collision" he was probably the first to use the term "energy," and in another lecture he defined a "modulus of elasticity" (Young’s modulus). The second volume includes a bibliography of some 20,000 references (which was omitted from the second edition and has never been reprinted), and reprints of his classic papers from the Philosophical Transactions, in which he established the wave theory of light and discovered the principle of light interference, gave the first description of astigmatism, and in general established the principles of physiological optics (see Garrison-Morton 1486-88). "Young made many discoveries in natural philosophy and physiological optics…he is most famous, however, for his attempt to win acceptance for an undulatory theory of light."–D.S.B., XIV, pp. 562-72. This is the nicest set of this great book I have seen for many years. ? Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 367–(giving a very full account of the contents of these two vols.).
