About this Item

With 100 text illustrations. Original blind stamped publisher's cloth, author and title in gilt on the spine, slightly faded; interior excellent. From the library of Arnold Thackray (founder of the Chemical Heritage Foundation) with his bookplate. Third American edition. An attractive copy, published as part of a series of popularized science-related monographs in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Published after the author's death, this work is divided into chapters on Number, Space, Quantity, Position, and Motion. It was edited and completed by Karl Pearson, an influential English mathematician. Clifford (1845-1879) was a philosopher and mathematician, best remembered as a popular writer in the field of mathematics and physics. "He played an important part, nevertheless, in introducing the ideas of G. F. B. Riemann and other writers on non-Euclidian geometry to English mathematicians.". Bookseller Inventory # 14835
