Dr. Thomson's 1895 Correspondence Course in Optics by Monroe J. Hirsch...


Professional Press, Inc., Chicago, Illinois, 1975. Hardcover. Book Condition: Like New. No Jacket. Signed by Author 8vo. Marbled paper-covered boards, black cloth spine with gilt titles; navy slipcase; pp. xxxii, 183, with b/w illustrated diagrams throughout. Modern reprint. Hand numbered, signed by Hirsch; Limited Edition 71 of 1500. Boards clean and unmarked. Introduction printed on tinted paper; internally bright, appearing unread. Slipcase a touch rubbed and scuffed. Although the courses on optics, or Optometry, were supported by many American colleges, it was not supported as a separate major until Columbia University's Optometric College began in 1910. Here, Hirsch reproduces the text of Thomson's original 1895 South Bend College-sponsored optics course [$25 off-campus, $50 on-campus] in its entirety, with commentary.
