Second edition, entirely reset. Publisher's original grey paper covered boards with titles in dark brown to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. A better than very good copy, the binding square and firm, the boards slightly sprung and toned to the edges. The contents are clean throughout and without inscriptions or stamps. Publisher's catalogue to the rear. Complete with the rubbed and nicked dustwrapper that is somewhat toned to the spine and panel edges. Publisher's revised price stamp to the upper panel.
Number 25 in Fifield's 'Grey Boards Series'. A lecture originally delivered to the Royal Institution on January 24, 1902, and first published in book form by T. Fisher Unwin later the same year.
