Excerpt from Sound: A Course of Eight Lectures Delivered at the Royal Institution of Great Britain
In the following pages I have tried to render the science of Acoustics interesting to all intelligent persons, including those who do not possess any special scientific culture.
The subject is treated experimentally throughout, and I have endeavoured so to place each experiment before the reader, that he should realise it as an actual operation. My desire indeed has been to give distinct images of the various phenomena of acoustics, and to cause them to be seen mentally in their true relations.
I have been indebted to the kindness of some of my English friends for a more or less complete examination of the proof sheets of this work. To one celebrated German friend, who has given himself the trouble of reading the proofs from beginning to end, my special thanks are due and tendered.
There is a growing desire for scientific culture throughout the civilised world. The feeling is natural, and, under the circumstances, inevitable. For a power which influences so mightily the intellectual and material action of the age, could not fail to arrest attention and challenge examination. In our schools and universities a movement in favour of science has begun which, no doubt, will end in the recognition of its claims, both as a source of knowledge and as a means of discipline.
