Presentation copy of the First Edition, inscribed: "Professor W.F. Magie/with the regards of the author." [xii], 588 pp; 172 figs. Original cloth. Spine slightly rubbed, else Very Good. The "most influential" of Webster's three texts, "a mathematical compendium of the principal ideas of Lord Kelvin, Peter G. Tait, Maxwell, Helmholtz, and other masters of classical dynamics" (D. S. B. 18: 983). ". [Magie] and Henry B. Fine were given leave (from Princeton) in 1884 and went to Germany, where Magie studied at the University of Berlin under the great Helmholtz, and earned his Ph.D. with a thesis on the measurement of surface tensions. A decade later he collaborated with two physicians in publishing the first paper in this country on the possible use of Roentgen's newly discovered X-rays in surgery. He later published occasional papers on the properties of solutions, and was the author of a highly regarded account of the rise and content of physical theories, Principles of Physics" (Princeton Web site). In his 1896 paper, "A Convenient Instrument for Visual Use in Diagnosis with the Roentgen Rays", Magie reported his invention of the fluoroscope. William Francis Magie was also editor of A Source Book in Physics. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 12089
