THE Letters of Faraday and Schoenbein 1836-1862. with Notes, Comments and References to Contemporary Letters (1899)
THE LETTERS OF FARADAY AND SCHOENBEIN 1836-1862. THE publication of historical documents, and letters are such documents, should be controlled by two principles. In the first place they should be set forth in exact agreement with the original, and in the next place provided with as many suitable comments as possible, to explain their meaning. In preparing these letters for publication we have laid down these two rules as a guide for our conduct, remaining innocent of the smallest change, printing them with all their many imperfections, faults and errors. Only when we were satisfied that, to prevent a mistaken interpretation, alterations could not well be neglected, we yielded. We have however enclosed such additions in brackets.
