About this Item

Doppler, Christian (1803-53). Über die bisherigen Erklärungs-Versuche des Aberrations-Phänomens. Offprint from Abhandlungen der K. Böhm. Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften, 5th series, 3 (1845). 19pp. Lithographed plate. Publisher's advertisement listing Doppler's publications tipped in before title. Prague: Gottlieb Haase Söhne, 1845. 290 x 225 mm. (uncut). Original printed wrappers, a bit faded, edges a little frayed and dust-soiled. Very good copy. First Edition, Offprint Issue. OCLC lists three copies in North American libraries and four copies in European libraries. Schuster cites another edition published in Prague by Borrosch and André in 1842 but this is almost certainly an error; no such edition is cited in OCLC, and Doppler did not deliver this paper until November 11, 1843. "Doppler's scientific fame rests on his enunciation of the Doppler principle, which relates the observed frequency of a wave to the motion of the source of the observer relative to the medium in which the wave is propagated. This appears in his article 'Ueber das farbige Licht der Doppelsterne und einiger andere Gestirne des Himmels (read 25 May 1842)" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). In the present paper Doppler discusses current attempts to explain the Bradley theorem of aberration, a topic he had touched on in the earlier paper.
