This book was an important milestone in the development of the mathematical theory of acoustics and vibrations. Donkin was a Professor of Mathematics at Oxford and was one of Rayleigh's principal mentors during Rayleigh's postgraduate days as a Fellow at Cambridge. Donkin set out to write a comprehensive treatise on acoustics, but died at the time this first volume was completed. Rayleigh acknowledges Donkin's book in the preface to his Theory of Sound and states that he would not have needed to write his book if Donkin had lived to complete the work he set out to write. Many of the mathematical proofs in the Theory of Sound are taken from Donkin's book.
