Thank you so much for posting this. I was lucky enough to find this last year, but only caught the last few days worth. the amount of knowledge is amazing. and being able to read their words gives you an excellent idea of their thought process, instead of what is filtered through modern media. Some had amazing insights for their times.

Quite a gem. Thanks again

Thanks John !! A fine contribution!

And, I heartily agree with the sentiments expressed. It always should be a preference to read for ourselves, the original works, along with the efforts of others to explain. Often the original papers are the clearest. J. Willard Gibbs, might be an exception, though.
