His Elementary Treatise on Quaternions, first published in 1867, and expanded in later editions of 1873 and 1890, was inspired by his study of William Rowan Hamilton’s Lectures on Quaternions 1853 which convinced Tait of the utility of this new algebra in solving physical problems.

This printing is the second, published in 1879. This definition, from the Preface to the second edition of 1879, defines the proposed scope of the work: the two volumes reissued here are the only completed part of a survey of the entirety of the physical sciences by Lord Kelvin and his fellow Scot, Peter Guthrie Tait, first published in 1867. Probably the most influential legacy of their collaboration on ‘heavy mathematical work’ was the production in 1867 of The Treatise on Natural Philosophy, which became universally known as ‘T&T’. It was Tait's concern to have adequate textbooks for his students to support his lectures that led to the project that resulted in ‘T&T’.
