Kiel, Paris, Lynn MA, London: Astronomische Nachrichten; I Hermann; Thos. P. Nichols; Wheldon & Wesley, 1922. First Printing. Wraps. Second volume only. The first volume, complete in itself, was published in 1917. Quarto, 11 x 9 inches, publisher's tan softcover, good with some wear to covers, some loss to lower right corner of front cover, contents very good. With presentation slip filled out to a Dr. R. Schumann in Wien, possibly filled in by See himself (who has also written "RSVP!" in pencil on the presentation slip), and an ink notation at the top of the front cover probably by Schumann. The inscription is probably to Richard Schumann (1864-1945), a Viennese scientist and professor at the Vienna Institute of Technology with an expertise in geodesy and spherical astronomy -- he was elected to head a Viennese commission on earth measurements as well. Jumpy pagination, as this volume reprints See's published papers, some in German journals. With illustrations including laid in panoramic photo of Himalayas. Very rare in the trade, well represented in libraries. See was a charlatan and serial plagiarizer who was a pariah in the physics and astronomy community due to his thievery, unbearably egotistical personality, scientific sloppiness and aggression toward established scientists including Einstein (who ignored him). This volume represents his work on "the theory of everything" that he published toward the end of his life in which he posits all force as aetheric waves, "definitely establishing the cause of universal gravitation, magnetism, electrodynamic action, molecular, atomic and explosive forces, etc., including a notable improvement in the foundations of the wave theory of light, and discovery of the cause of acoustic attraction and repulsion, which is especially suitable for illustrating the invisible processes of gravitational attraction." Good. Item #H36239
