Bibliographia Kepleriana

Article metrics


A POPULAR version of Kepler's letters was published in 1930 by Messrs. Caspar and von Dyck, and was reviewed in NATURE of November 29, 1930, p. 835. Since then Prof. Walther von Dyck has died. We learn that he never lost an opportunity of pressing the claims of Kepler for a collected edition other than that of Frisch?which is open to many objections?and of collecting and studying any documents by Kepler, of which there are a great many. Before he died he had the satisfaction of seeing the Bavarian Academy of Sciences in Munich, with the co-operation of the Deutsche Forschungs-gemeinschaft, consent to become responsible for the work. It has named Prof. Max Caspar as editor, and the Wiirtemberg State Government has set him free from other work for the purpose. He dedicates this volume to Walther von Dyck, and has been able to use the material collected by Dr. Rothenfelder.
