BY THE SAME AUTHOR.
ELEMENTARY LESSONS IN HEAT,
LIGHT, AND SOUND.
25. 6d. SCOTSMAN:- It is an elementary book, but few elementary books convey anything like so much knowledge of their subjects, and few make the subjects so interesting to a mind coming fresh to them. The large number of illustrations contribute something to this result, but it is due mainly to the expository skill of the author, and to his interesting manner of explaining experiments.'
EDUCATIONAL REVIEW :-'Well arranged, clearly written. It possesses that rarest of all virtues in a school text-book, scientific accuracy.'
SCOTTISH LEADER :-'Prof. Jones is master of an admirably clear expository style; he spares no pains to make each phase of his subject intelligible, and his explanations are aided by numerous diagrams and other illustrations.'
LESSONS IN HEAT AND LIGHT.
Fcap. 8vo. 35. 6d. SPEAKER:-'An admirable manual. Details of manipulation are clearly explained, and the simplest forms of an appeal to experiment are placed in an attractive manner at the student's disposal.'
GLASGOW HERALD:-'The same excellent features observable in the previous work, and which gained for it most favourable notices, are to be found in the present treatise. ... Mr. Jones possesses in a high degree the ability to set forth the principles of the subject in a clear and attractive manner, and to the student no better book could be recommended.'
ELECTRICIAN:-'It is a pleasure to discover a work in which the evident object, an object which has been steadily kept in view throughout the treatise, is to teach and not to cram for examination.
... We think every elementary student of physics should possess a copy of this work.'
