Description Life of Sir William Rowan Hamilton, Andrews Professor of Astronomy in the University of Dublin, and Royal Astronomer of Ireland, Vol. 3 by Robert Perceval Graves

Excerpt from Life of Sir William Rowan Hamilton, Andrews Professor of Astronomy in the University of Dublin, and Royal Astronomer of Ireland, Vol. 3: Including Selections From His Poems, Correspondence, and Miscellaneous Writings From His Poems, Correspondence The biographical portion of this volume was brought to a close and printed early in 1887. This fact will account for occasional references in it to persons and events which are not in exact accord with the present state of things. The subsequent and larger portion of the volume consists of a selection from a very extensive correspondence between Sir W. R. Hamilton and Professor Augustus DeMorgan. To make this selection has involved the expenditure of much time and labour. The quantity of material was so great that I have had to exclude matter that possessed inherent value, either because it was in subject unsuited to this work, or because, being mathematical, the investigations carried on were too abstruse or too extended. The general reader will perhaps complain that I have introduced more than enough of mathematical investigation- but he will, I hope, withdraw this complaint when he calls to mind that it was as scientific men that the writers corresponded, that it would be unjust to them if their correspondence as printed should not retain this character, and that the mathematical discussions did in fact most often afford suggestion to the play of thought which, passing beyond the boundaries of science, prompted the wit and the learned and pleasant gossip which all readers will enjoy. Its possession of the elements last mentioned was the circumstance which determined me to place this correspondence in immediate connexion with the biography. In some instances I have given a condensed statement of the mathematical matter under discussion. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
