Originally published in 1923, this book was written by the pioneering British meteorologist Napier Shaw (1854-1945). It presents a selection of Shaw's essays and lectures dealing with 'the physical explanation of the atmospheric circulation', including his Rede Lecture for 1921, delivered at Cambridge University. Additionally, there are some papers on the 'application of meteorology to agriculture'. Numerous illustrative figures, including detailed charts and maps, are incorporated throughout the text. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in meteorology and the history of science.
