Overview

Excerpt from Reprint of Papers on Electrostatics: And Magnetism

This volume consists chiefly of reprinted articles, on EIectrostatics and mathematically allied subjects, which originally appeared at different times during the last thirty years, in the Cambridge Mathematical Journal, the Cambridge and Dublin Mathematical Journal, Liouville's Journal de Mathématiques, the Philosophical Magazine, Nichol's Cyclopœdia, the Reports of the British Association, the Transactions or Proceedings of the Royal Societies of Tendon and Edinburgh, the Royal Institution of Great Britain, and the Philosophical Societies of Manchester and Glasgow. The remainder, constituting about a quarter of the whole, is now printed for the first time from manuscript, which, except a small part about twenty years old, entitled "Electromagnets" has been written for the present publication, to fill up roughly gaps in the collection. The original dates of the republished articles, the dates of all new matter appearing as insertions or notes in the course of those articles, and the dates of the fresh articles have all been carefully indicated.

The article on Atmospheric Electricity, extracted from Nichol's Cyclopœdia, was originally written at the request of my late friend and colleague the Editor; and for the permission to reprint it I am indebted to his son, my colleague, Professor John Nichol, and to the Messrs. Griffin, the publishers of the Cyclopœdia.
