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 deals with the theory of electricity, with Part 1 dealing with electrostatics and Part 2 with electrokinematics. `The formulation of these equations is the most important event in physics since Newton's time.' Albert Einstein in The Evolution of Physics
