London: Royal Society of London, 1853. Hardcover. First Edition. iv, -566, -15 pp. 4to. Library binding, tan leather spine with gold embossed titling. Interiors clean, ex-library stamp on title page, and occurring sporadically within. Numerous folding plates that illustrate articles. Pages were trimmed slightly when rebound.
For Part I, see our #27517, "On the Change of Refrangibility of Light" (pp. 385-396). Also contains William Thomson's "On the Thermal Effects of Fluids in Motion" (Volume 143 pp. 357-365, 1853) and J. C. Adams' "On the Secular Variation of the Moon's Mean Motion" (pp. 397-406). Very Good.
