About this book

This celebrated treatise details Maxwell's theory of electromagnetism which underpins much modern physics. The theory elaborated here inspired both Lorentz's theories on the electron and Einstein's theory of relativity. This volume contains Parts III and IV of the treatise dealing respectively with magnetism and finally with electromagnetism itself.

If your library does not have copies of the original editions, you should certainly ask them to consider getting these...and you may want one or two for yourself! MAA Online, April 1999
