Abstract

THE eighteenth volume of the monumental edition of the works of Christiaan Huygens, in course of publication by the Dutch Society of Sciences, appears less interesting than many of its predecessors. The reason for this impression does not lie in the value of its contents. On the contrary, it is because the greater part of the volume is occupied by the classical work “Horologium Oscillatorium”, which alone would have sufficed to establish the enduring fame of its author. But this was the mature outcome of years of earlier research; the polished work is not only more familiar, but also the phase of creative effort has an interest which cannot be altogether sustained in a formal textbook, however original.
