About this Item

8vo. Pages 184-192; pp. 327-333. [Entire volume: [ii], 380 pp.] Tables. Quarter tan calf, calf corners, marbled boards, black leather spine label, gilt spine, original printed wrappers bound in; hinges starting, spine aged and cracked. Ex library rubber stamps and blind stamp of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, Solar Observatory. Very good. FIRST EDITION. These two papers give an interesting insight into the state of American physical astronomy at the time that spectroscopy was beginning to transform the field. Pliny Earle Chase was professor of philosophy in Haverford College; here he presents his ideas on nebular action, an dynamic theory of cosmological development that he presented in many papers. DAB, IV, p. 27. David Trowbridge presents what was known at the time of the solar and planetary atmospheres based, in part, on the work of Young and Proctor. Bookseller Inventory # S6475
