Excerpt from Hermann Ludwig Ferdinand Von Helmholtz

Few are able to tread in the footsteps of Helmholtz, even although these are carefully pointed out by a competent guide: but this volume may at all events give an outline of the paths along which he trod.

The proofs have been read by Mr J. L. Galbraith, of the Library of the University of Glasgow, to whom I owe my thanks: and I have gratefully to acknowledge much valuable assistance and friendly criticism from Dr Cargill G. Knott, Lecturer on Mathematical Physics in the University of Edinburgh.

The characteristic portrait was most kindly lent by Lord Kelvin. It was taken by Mr Henderson, a student of physics at that time, and it represents Helmholtz at his lecture table on July 7, 1894, a few days before his final illness.
