I’ve recently put the preprint on the arXiv of my conference presentation last September, on Maxwell’s edition of The Electrical Researches of Henry Cavendish.

Although, probably, Maxwell’s least significant contribution to science, I argue that we can learn a lot about his attitudes and preoccupations during the last five years of his life from the way he tackled this task.
