Most widely held works by James Clerk Maxwell
A treatise on electricity and magnetism by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )
192 editions published between 1873 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 2,849 libraries worldwide
Volumes 1 and 2 of an important foundation work of modern physics. Brings to final form Maxwell's theory of electromagnetism and rigorously derives his general equations of field theory
Matter and motion by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )
147 editions published between 1876 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,976 libraries worldwide
Published posthumously in 1888, this treatise by the first Cavendish Professor of Physics at Cambridge explores and explains the fundamental principles and laws that are the basis of elementary physics. Maxwell was at the forefront of physics and mathematics during the nineteenth century and his pioneering work brought together existing ideas to give 'a dynamical theory of the electromagnetic field'. This work inspired not only the applications of electromagnetic waves like fibre optics but also Einstein's theory of relativity. The text explains many
Theory of heat by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )
148 editions published between 1871 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,129 libraries worldwide
The scientific papers of James Clerk Maxwell by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )
52 editions published between 1890 and 2010 in English and held by 777 libraries worldwide
The publication in 1890 of the two-volume Scientific Papers of James Clerk Maxwell, edited by W. D. Niven, was one of the two objects of a committee formed 'for the purpose of securing a fitting memorial of him' (the other object being the commissioning of a marble bust for the Cavendish Laboratory). Before his death in 1879 at the age of 48, Clerk Maxwell had made major contributions to many areas of theoretical physics and mathematics, not least his discoveries in the fields of electromagnetism and of the kinetic theory of gases, which have

A dynamical theory of the electromagnetic field by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )
14 editions published between 1856 and 1996 in English and held by 571 libraries worldwide
Maxwell on Saturn's rings by James Clerk Maxwell( Book )
5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 444 libraries worldwide
James Clerk Maxwell's 1856 Adams Prize Essay, "On the Stability of the Motion of Saturn's Rings," forms the central body of this book and is the work that first established his reputation as one of the greatest mathematical physicists of any generation. It is surrounded by previously unpublished materials written both before and after the essay was completed. The former group consists of sixteen letters - to William Thomson (later Lord Kelvin), George Gabriel Stokes, Peter Guthrie Tait, and other friends and colleagues - written while Maxwell was working out the problems and preparing the essay for publication, and they reveal both the sureness of his approach and false starts and errors. The post-essay documents include a review of the work by George Biddell Airy, the Astronomer Royal, and correspondence with the Harvard astronomer George Bond in 1863. Here Maxwell attempts to extend his analysis to include the effects of collisions among the particles of the ring, employing his own newly developed kinetic theory of gases. The editors' introduction provides a historical context for Maxwell's contribution
