A Theory of Time and Space
Cambridge: University Press 1914 - Cambridge: Univ. Press, 1914 First UK Edition. 8vo, [vi], 373pp., 2 pp. of publisher's ads on math and physics, index, 43 illustrations. Publisher's dark blue ruled cloth boards, bright gilt spine lettering and Cambridge Press coat of arms, Good+ copy, area of bubbling of cloth on upper front cover. No prior ownership or institutional markings, internally very clean, tight un-cracked hinges and in Near Fine condition. A Scarce and important publication. The most extensive, and in many ways the deepest, qualitative investigations of the axiomatic foundations of special relativity are found in the work of Alfred A. Robb. An early examination of the very new discoveries under the name of "The Theory of Relativity" which was still in a condition of considerable obscurity. Although generally associated with the names of Einstein and Minkowski, the really essential physical considerations underlying the theories are due to Larmor and Lorentz.
