Albert Einstein - Mileva Maric: Erotikes epistoles Ερωτικές επιστολές

Δήμητρα-Ενδοξία Μπάτσιον, Στέλλα Τσικρικά, Jürgen Renn, Robert Schulmann
Greek translation of the "Love letters" by Albert Einstein and Mileva Maric. Unlike the picture of Einstein the lone, isolated thinker of Princeton, he appears here both as the burgeoning enfant terrible of science and as an amorous young man beset, along with his fiance, by financial and personal struggles--among them the illegitimate birth of their daughter, whose existence is known only by these letters.

Naufragi di terra e di mare : da Leonardo da Vinci a Theodor Mommsen alla ricerca dei codici Albani ; edizione del manoscritto XIII.F.25, cc. 129-136 della Biblioteca Nazionale di Napoli

Il volume ricostruisce la storia di alcuni manoscritti un tempo conservati a Roma e a Urbino nelle biblioteche della famiglia Albani. Dispersi in gran parte tra la fine del XVIII e la seconda metà del XIX secolo, quei codici facevano parte di una tra le più preziose collezioni private europee.

Working Group Books

Working Group Books are an MPIWG specialty: volumes written by two or more authors which are the result of intensive collaboration, involving multiple working sessions in which drafts of the individual chapters are presented, discussed, and revised. Many MPIWG research projects publish their principal results in this form, in addition to books and articles by individual participating scholars. These Working Group Books are especially well suited to opening up new fields of research and to covering topics from a comparative perspective, both challenges that invite collective rather than individual scholarship.
