Naturally, most papers assume knowledge of advanced mathematics, and all papers of classical electrodynamics, as mostly does the editor's Introduction [see Look Inside pages]. But, to those of us lacking such knowledge, the latter gives some assistance (whilst remaining essentially an introduction to the historical development of the physics and its mathematical interpretation) and at least the introductions to most of the papers can be followed. Paper 5 contains but a single equation, and is in Bohr's inimitable style.
As can be seen [page vi] various papers were omitted (including those on Wave Mechanics which, it was hoped, would form a second volume).
It will be of interest primarily to physics undergraduates (such as myself) and to historians of science. I believe it presents the most convenient, if not only, English translation of some of these important sources.

My one gripe: while all of the actual papers are provided in English, the editor gives quotations from correspondence (both his own and that between the authors and their collaborators) in the original language (mostly German) without translation. This isn't an insurmountable barrier to understanding the gist, but it seems like an odd choice in a collection of translated articles.
