This is the first of three large and apparently carefully reproduced volumes contain the scientific works of Paul Painlevé (1863–1933), mathematician and politician. Volume I contains a curriculum vitae of Painlevé, including his most important political offices, a preface by René Garnier setting Painlevé's mathematical activity into focus, an "Hommage" by Arnaud Denjoy, a list of Painlevé's speeches and political writings, some of which were published in his book [ Paroles et écrits, Rieder, Paris (1936; JFM 62.1043.06)], a list of writings and speeches about Painlevé that have been published, a chronological list of 132 scientific publications (from 1886 to 1930, with two items from 1961 based on courses he had taught long before), a list of 25 prefaces written by Painlevé to other books, a general bibliography of works that treat various aspects of the theory of differential equations from Painlevé's point of view, J. Hadamard's description of Painlevé's scientific works [Rev. Métaphys. Morale 14, 289–325 (1934; JFM 60.0837.08)], Painlevé's own analysis [ Analyse des travaux scientifique jusqu'en 1900, Librairie Sci. Tech. A. Blanchard, Paris (1967; Zbl 0153.00101) (reprint of the privately printed 1900 Gauthier-Villars edition)], a list prepared by the editors of the places where specific works of Painlevé are cited in his analysis, and his famous Stockholm lectures of 1895 [ Leçons sur la théorie analytique des équations différentielles professées à Stockhom, Hermann, Paris, (1897; JFM 28.0262.01)], to which the editors have added a brief foreword indicating what things are still of importance and noteworthy about the lectures, a table of contents of the mathematics (not of chapter and section), a chart indicating the relationship between the type of equation and the type of problem and the pages on which they are treated in the Stockholm lectures, a terminological index and a bibliography to the lectures.
