With a natural emphasis on his scientific contributions, this limited edition set documents all aspects of Bohr's life and work. Each of the twelve volumes is introduced and edited by a physicist or scholar with particular knowledge of the subject in question and as a bonus a supplementary index volume has now been prepared for the whole set.
All volumes are illustrated with rare photos, and Bohr's publications are supplemented with carefully selected manuscripts and correspondence documenting the background for his work and his milieu. The Niels Bohr Collected Works constitute a unique resource for collectors and anyone interested in the history of science, and adds up to a fascinating story of the political dedication and social responsibility of one of the major scientists of the twentieth century.
