About this Item

356 pages. "In the first 14 chapers the laws of reflexion, refraction, dispersion, and absorption of light are demonstrated by experiement without reference to any theory of the nature of light. This comes forward prominently for the first time in the 15th chapter, in discussing Fresnel's mirror experiment, and the conclusion arrived at being in favour of the undulatory theory, it is shown that this theory is not only in accordnace with all the facts hitherto known, but also affords the most satisfactory explanation of the phenomena of double Refraction and polarisation, both of which receive subsequent consideration." VERY GOOD HARDCOVER, ex-library withdrawn, in its original red blind stamped binding, lettering is bright on the spine and cover. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 027022
