Stolzenburg; Vol. 6: Foundation of Quantum Physics I (1926-1932); Vol. 7: Foundation of Quantum Physics II (1933-1958) by J. Kalckar; Vol. 8: The Penetration of Charged Particles Through Matter (1912-1954) by J. Thorsen; Vol. 9: Nuclear Physics (1929-1952) by R. Peierls; Vol. 10. ( Complementarity Beyond Physics (1928-1962) by R. Favrholdt. The ten volumes were not published in chronological order. The first volume is in the first edition.
