I would like to offer the following comment on the paper “The Gravitational Attraction of a Right Rectangular Prism” by Nagy in the April 1966 issue of Geophysics. It might be of interest to note that besides the papers (Sorokin, 1951; Haáz, 1953) which have been cited by the author, an earlier publication by Ansel (1936) also gives a solution in closed form for the gravitational attraction of a rectangular prism. Furthermore, Müller (1963) has given a solution which is valid for all possible positions of the prism with vertical sides.
