DescriptionIn response to Legg's query, Harrison states that the only separate collection of Hertz's electromagnetic papers which he is acquainted with is the volume on 'Electric waves' translated by D E Jones and published by Macmillan in 1893. In this volume is a paper on electromagnetic waves which Harrison thinks might be the one which Legg wants. This paper is taken from 'Wiedemann's Annalen', volume 34, p. 616, 1888.
