DO THE EYES FOLLOW YOU? "On the Apparent Direction of Eyes in a Portrait." (Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Vol. 114 for the Year 1824, Part I & Part II, pp. 247-256).

London: Royal Society of London, 1824. Quarter Leather. First Edition. iv, 498, 10 [19] pp. 4to. Library binding, tan leather spine with gold embossed titling, scuffing and tears where call numbers have been removed. Interiors clean, ex-library stamp on title page, and occurring sporadically within. Numerous folding plates that illustrate articles. Pages were trimmed slightly when rebound. Very Good.
William Hyde Wallston indicates at the outset of his article that "portrait painting is not altogether a fit subject to be brought before the Royal Society..." but goes on to explain that his paper looks at the rules of perspective which is purely mathematical. Five plates follow the paper, with two having movable sheets to show shift in perspective.
