TitlePaper, 'Experiment concerning the vibrations of pendulums' by William Derham
DescriptionSubject: Physics

The account which Mr. Bradley hath given in 'Philosopohical. Transactions' No 432, of observations made at Jamaica by Mr. Campbel, with a nice pendulum-clock of Mr. Graham's making, brought to my mind some experiments made some years ago, that may be of use in observations of this nature.

Read to the Royal Society on 17 April 1735.
