Most widely held works by James P. C Southall
Helmholtz's treatise on physiological optics by Hermann von Helmholtz( Book )

44 editions published between 1924 and 2000 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Helmholtz' 'Popular Scientific Lectures' have spread his fame far and wide among educated people everywhere. While he was professor at Heidelberg and still a comparatively young man, nearly three-score years ago he composed the preface to the first edition of his monumental work on light and vision, in all their intricate and manifold relations to each other; and already considerably more than a decade has passed since the publication of the posthumous third edition of the Physiologische Optik which was brought up to date and greatly enlarged under the collaboration of Nagel, Gullstrant and v. Kries. Yet in all these years there has been no English translation of this great classical treatise; and unfortunately no similar work in English of any kind. It is interesting to note that both Young and Helmholtz, the two great pioneers in Physiological Optics, started on their careers in the medical profession, and each of them afterwards gained his greatest renown in Physics. Apart from its own intrinsic value, the treatise on Physiological Optics is a model of scientific method and logical procedure that has hardly ever been excelled in these respects"--Preface.

Treatise on physiological optics. Tr. from the 3d German ed by Hermann von Helmholtz( Book )

5 editions published in 1962 in English and Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most important work ever produced in the field of physiological optics, this classic is a model of scientific method and logical procedure, and it remains unmatched in its thorough and accessible approach. This is the third in a three-volume republication of the definitive English translation of Handbuch der Physiologischen Optik, originally published by The Optical Society of America in 1924 and containing everything that was known about physiological optics up until that time. The substratum consists of the data that Helmholtz furnished in the two nineteenth-century German editions that a
