PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
The present edition is the result of a careful revision applied to its predecessor.
An unsatisfactory artificial hypothesis as to the motion of particles in the surface of water-waves, which was avowedly introduced into the first edition for the sake of simplicity, is replaced by a mode of treatment based upon observed facts.
Points on which special difficulty was ex­perienced by readers of the first edition are here somewhat more fully elucidated.
The author has, of course, consulted the revised edition1 of Helmholtz's Tonempfindungen.
Trinity College, Cambridge, June, 1883.
1 Vitrte umgearbeitete Ausgahe. Braunschweig, 1877.
