Minor repairs to spine; a very good copy. In 1837, Philip Kelland (1908-79; F.R.S., 1838), professor of mathematics at Edinburgh, published a treatise on heat which contained an erroneous understanding of Fourier's great work of 1822 that was corrected by the young Kelvin a few years later in his first published scientific paper. Kelland was the first Englishman with a wholly English education who was admitted to a chair in the University of Edinburgh. The present work is based on Kelland's annual lectures to his students on first principles in mathematics. Bookseller Inventory # 000275
