Brown University, 1944, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good, First Edition. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall, From the personal library of prominent optical lens designer Professor Charles Gorrie Wynne, FRS, who had this large work bound into two black buckram volumes in 1953, per bookbinder's receipt laid-in. Bookplates affixed by Dr. Wynne's family inside each front board further evince this provenance. [3], 6 (errata), xvii, 213 + 188, iii, 38 (supp. 1), 7 (appendix I), 6 (appendix II), 22 (supp. 2), 8 (supp. 3), 9 (supp. 4) pp. "These notes cover a course in Optics given at Brown University in the summer of 1944." - from Acknowledgement. Supplementary note on Electron Optics provided by Mr. Blank. Three supplementary notes provided by Dr. Herzberger. "The author's idea of treating geometrical optics as a special limiting case of wave optics has never before been carried out in so much detail. His treatment of diffraction optics is an important step forward. Highly recommended as a source of valuable information. Herzberger's first supplement is probably the best succinct presentation of electronic optics so far published in any language." - Bull. Amer. Math. Soc., Vol 51, #11. Bindings intact. Light exterior wear. Glossy buckram finish has faded unevenly resulting in a moderately mottled finish. Bit of ink writing atop front free endpaper of each volume.
