On the sensations of tone as a physiological basis for the theory of music by Hermann von Helmholtz( Book )
295 editions published between 1862 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 3,290 libraries worldwide
Helmholtz applies physics, anatomy, and physiology in his study of aesthetics and physiological acoustics. He explains how tones are built from a base tone with upper partial tones, and his later discussions on consonance and musical scales develop this theory. He also discusses how the ear perceives these tones

Popular lectures on scientific subjects by Hermann von Helmholtz( Book )
171 editions published between 1865 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 897 libraries worldwide
"The favour with which the first series of Professor Helmholtz's Lectures has been received would justify, if a justification were needed, the publication of the present volume. I have to express my acknowledgments to Professor G. Croome Robertson, the editor, and to Messrs. Macmillan, the publishers of 'Mind,' for permission to use a translation of the paper on the 'Axioms of Modern Geometry' which appeared in that journal. The article on 'Academic Freedom in German Universities' contains some statements respecting the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge to which exception has been taken. These statements were a fair representation of the impression produced on the mind of a foreigner by a state of things which no longer exists in those Universities, at least to the same extent. The reform in the University system, which may be said to date from the year 1854, has brought about so many alterations both in the form and in the spirit of the regulations, that older members of the University have been known to speak of the place as so changed that they could scarcely recognise it. Hence, in respect of this article, I have availed myself of the liberty granted by Professor Helmholtz, and have altogether omitted some passages, and have slightly modified others, which would convey an erroneous impression of the present state of things. I have also on these points consulted members of the University on whose judgment I think I can rely. In other articles, where the matter is of prime importance, I have been anxious faithfully to reproduce the original; nor have I in any such cases allowed a regard for form to interfere with the plain duty of exactly rendering the author's meaning"--Preface.
