|Title||A history of pendulum observations, by John Herschel|
|Description||Draft version of a history of the use of pendulums for gravity observations, with an introduction to the unpublished material by the author, translations and reference notes for insertion into the final text. |
Herschel's work on the manuscripts stopped in August 1881, shortly before he departed for the United States of America to aid in the manufacture of equipment for geodetic surveys there. The manuscripts were deposited with the Royal Society in March 1886, at the time of Herschel's retirement from the British Army with the honorary rank of Colonel.
