London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1912. First printing of a collection of the main results of Chree's works on Terrestrial Magnetism up to 1912, with several charts and diagrams. Large 8vo. Publisher's blue cloth with gilt titles to spine and embossed to upper. A superb copy of a rare book. '...The mere volume of Chree's published work is a witness to his industry, especially when it is remembered that for the greater part of his time at Kew administrative and routine work took up a large proportion of his time. But industry went also with a high standard of criticism, and an utter want of dogmatism. When Chree, by a certain arrangement of data, had obtained the result he expected he was not satisfied until he had re-arranged his data in all possible ways and satisfied himself that each showed the effect or at least did not contradict it. Even then he was pedantically careful in stating his results and never slurred over inconvenient evidence.' (Obituary, Royal Society, Feb. 1, 1929). Item #33989
