After many years of circulating in typescript form, this remarkable study by Thomas K. Simpson?a work long celebrated as something of an underground classic?is at long last available in a new edition worthy of its vision and depth. Green Lion Press is delighted to issue as a fine volume this work, the first major study of Maxwell's Treatise to take seriously the way Maxwell's presents his arguments. It is newly edited and presented in an attractive readable layout.
