Commemoration of James Clerk Maxwell

James Clerk Maxwell became a Fellow of the RSE in 1856 when he was just aged twenty-four, having presented his first paper to the RSE at fourteen (or rather Professor Forbes FRSE, Professor of Natural Philosophy at Edinburgh University presented on Maxwell’s behalf as Maxwell was considered too young!)

The Commemoration of James Clerk Maxwell is a  stunning 130 page book, published by the RSE to commemorate the achievements and legacy of Maxwell’s work.

To purchase this publication at £12 inc. of postage, please contact the Records Management Officer.
