An electrical engineer, university teacher and wide-ranging writer, Fleeming Jenkin (1833-85) filed thirty-five British patents in the course of his career. Edited by Sidney Colvin (1845-1927) and J. A. Ewing (1855-1935) and first published in 1887, this two-volume work brings together a selection of Jenkin's varied and engaging papers. The collection ranges from notes on his voyages as a marine telegraph engineer, to a critical review of Darwin's On the Origin of Species, essays on literature, and thoughts on technical education. A memoir written by Robert Louis Stevenson, his former student, provides biographical context and attests to Jenkin's many interests and talents across the arts and sciences. Volume 1 begins with Stevenson's memoir, contains pieces on literature and drama, and includes the review of Darwin. Volume 2 contains papers on political economy, scientific education and applied science. Abstracts of his scientific papers, along with a list of his patents, form an appendix.
