  • "This work should be regarded as both a textbook and a source-book; the fundamentals of the subject are set out in detail, and there the student should find everything needed to master the basic ideas or to begin the analysis of some class of systems not yet explored; the principle electron optical components are likewise dealt with in great detail. I like to recommend this work to each who is concerned within the field of particle optics."

    "The importance of the present volumes is that they present again the whole subject in a very coherent way, but particularly also taking into account the developments of the past twenty years. They should be regarded both as a text book and an important reference....Their aim of providing a very up to date account of the principles of electron optics has been well achieved and they can be highly recommended."
