GHT: A COURSE OF EXPERIMENTAL OPTICS, CHIEFLY WITH THE LANTERN. By LEWIS WRIGHT, Author of "Optical Projection: a Treatise on the Use of the Lantern." Second Edition. Revised and Enlarged.

The present edition is somewhat enlarged and in some respects modified. Further consideration has led me to revise the method and order of 'ment as regards some of the phenomena of polarised light. Some attempt has been made, though briefly, to show the general relation and bearing ent discoveries by Hertz, Lippmann, and others. Having also received many proofs of the delight and instruction afforded by the beautiful polarising preparations first described by Mr. C. J. Fox, and having carried the designing and preparations of such illustrations very much her since the work originally appeared, I have added full details of everything of the kind devised to the present date, and of the practical ipulation of mica films. These paragraphs will constitute perhaps the principal additions.
