About this Item

Facsimile Reprint of original six-volume edition, with 16-plate 'Supplement of photographs pertaining to Lord Rayleigh's life and work' compiled by John N. Howard at end of Vols. I-II volume. Original cloth. A Near Fine set, in near fine dust jackets (price-clipped). Lord Rayleigh: Nobel Prize, Physics, 1904, 'for his investigations of the densities of the most important gases and for his discovery of argon in connection with these studies.' 'Lord Rayleigh was justifiably renowned for the breadth, clarity and quality of his work, which has had a continuing impact on many fields of modern science. These six chronologically-arranged volumes collect the scientific papers written during his long and distinguished career from 1869 to 1919. His 446 publications embrace 12 disciplines (as classified by Rayleigh): mathematics, general mechanics, elastic solids, capillarity, hydrodynamics, sound, thermodynamics, dynamical theory of gases, properties of gases, electricity and magnetism, optics and 'miscellaneous topics'. Many constitute significant contributions to more than one of these subjects. Even more astonishing, Rayleigh contributed regularly to advances in all but one of these categories throughout his working life. The single exceptional topic the properties of gases spans only Volumes 35, but includes the work that earned Rayleigh a Nobel Prize. These collected papers include all Rayleigh's significant publications except his book The Theory of Sound' (Web site of Cambridge University Press, which offers a six-volume paperback reprint set for US$260, ISBN 9781108005418).
