Cambridge:: University Press, 1896., 1896. Tall 8vo. xvi, 292 pp. Errata slip tipped-in, index. Original navy blue gilt-stamped cloth. Near fine. First edition. "Ernest Brown is chiefly remembered for his outstanding work in celestial mechanics, more specifically his meticulous researches into the complex intricacies of lunar theory. …Brown did not intend to develop a completely new lunar theory when he started his investigation of the Moon's motion. Rather, it evolved as he became more familiar with the whole field and familiarized himself with the various methods available for use in its study." – Thomas Hockey (ed.), Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers, p. 174 (Richard Baum).
