Dr. Joule'S Scientific Papers


    OUR benefactors are oftentimes unrecognised. The writer of the present notice of our latest acquisition in scientific literature, takes credit to himself for having been the first to propose to Sir William Thomson the reprinting of his original papers. Seized with a great desire to possess those invaluable electrostatic papers, which, in 1867, could only be read in the original by those who were fortunate enough to have access to the Cambridge and Dublin Mathematical Journal, he urged that there must be many others by whom a reprint would be gladly welcomed. Thus was originated the reprint of the “Electrostatics and Magnetism.”

    The Scientific Papers of James Prescott Joule, D.C.L., LL.D., F.R.S., &c.

    (London: Published by the Physical Society, 1884.)
