This collection consists of a selection of scientific papers and correspondence by and addressed to Chemist and Physicist, Thomas Andrews (1813-85), chiefly written in his own hand or copied by his daughters, Elizabeth Andrews and Mary K. Andrews, and forming part of the documents used in the preparation of 'The Scientific Papers of the Late Thomas Andrews. With a Memoir by P.G. Tait and A. Crum Brown' (London, 1889). The material appears to be organised according to his daughters' original arrangement in preparation for the 1889 book and includes a series of 10 scientific memoirs presented to Andrews by their authors, notebooks from lectures attended by Andrews on astronomy, physics and chemistry (c 1828-c 1840), correspondence with a range of academics including Michael Faraday, Sir Edward Sabine and Sir George Gabriel Stokes on scientific problems (1842-72), papers presented by Andrews to the Belfast Literary and Philosophical Society (c1836-c1874), and reports, drafts, notes and drawings relating to his research into the gaseous state of matter.
