London: Royal Society of London, 1886. Three Quarter Leather. First Edition. 842 pp. 43 plates. 4to. Recent brown three quarter leather bindings with five raised bands at spine, burgundy title patch with gold embossed titling, gold lines offsetting bands, decorative stamp in each compartment without titling. Numerous folding plates that illustrate articles. Numerous pages throughout volume are brittle with small tears and losses at edges, a large tear at midpoint in the title page of Poynting's article. Pages were trimmed slightly when rebound. The occasional library stamp as it is an ex-library volume, rebound. Very Good.
William de Wiveleslie Abney (1843-1920) extended his interests to spectroscopyand was the first to suggest (1877) that stars with rapid axial rotation could be detected by broadened lines in their spectra - an idea later to have wide application. He then devised a red-sensitive emulsion and with it made the first spectroscopic analyses of the structure of organic molecules (1882) and the first photographs of the solar spectrum in the infrared (1887). Articles illustrated by Plates 24-28.
