This volume presents a selection of more than 400 letters from and to the Dutch physicist and Nobel Prize winner Hendrik Antoon Lorentz (1853-1928), covering the period from 1883 until a few months before his death. The letters included in this volume have been selected according to various criteria, the most important of which is scientific interest. A second criterion has been the availability of letters both from and to Lorentz, so that the reader can follow the scientific exchange between Lorentz and his correspondent.Of such correspondences only a few unimportant items have been omitted, the emphasis always being on scientific interest. The letters are presented in their original language (which for this volume is mainly German, with a few French and English items); a few Dutch drafts are accompanied by English translations. The book's editor, Anne Kox, has prepared a biography of Lorentz, as well as annotations of selected letters. H. A.
