Vol 1.1: 50p; Vol 1.2: x, 380p; Vol 2: viii, 247p; Vol 3: x, 256p; Vol 4: x, 406p; Vol 5: xii, 370p; Vol 6: xii, 420p. Frontispiece portrait of Helmholtz in first volume. Tables, graphs and equations throughout. Half velum w/green cloth. Five compartment spine, black leather labels with gilt lettering. Title page of vol 1.1 has a 12cm tear, though it is contained to the corner and in no way obscures the text [please see pictures]. Otherwise text is bright, clean and complete. Binding is in exceptional condition, with only a few minor marks to the boards. Individual volume titles are as follows: Vol 1.1. (1921) Introductory to the lectures on Theoret. Physics; Vol. 1.2 The Dynamics of Discrete Mass Points; Vol. 2 (1902) Dynamics of Continuously Spread Masses; Vol. 3 (1898) The mathematical principles of acoustics; Vol. 4 (1907) Electrodynamics and Theory of Magnetism; Vol. 5 (1897) Electromagnetic Theory of Light; Vol. 6 (1903) Theory of Warmth. The collected lectures of Hermann Von Helmoltz on Theoretical Physics. Rare to find complete in six volumes. Hermann Ludwig Ferdinand von Helmholtz (August 31, 1821 – September 8, 1894) was a German physician and physicist who made significant contributions in several scientific fields. In physics, he is known for his theories on the conservation of energy, work in electrodynamics, chemical thermodynamics, and on a mechanical foundation of thermodynamics.
