This is a reprint of the google books image. An occasional word or phrase is missing due to faults in the original library copy. (But nothing important). All the even number pages are printed on the right, when they ought to be on theleft, and vice-versa. It is surprising how annoying this can be.
Planck wrote this while he was still planning on the line of research which later led to his discovery of the quantum, his Nobel prix winning discovery four years later. It is a book well worth reading if you are interested in the foundational concepts of entropy. Planck was especially interested in The Second Law at that time, and his treatment follows the thermodynamic point of view, *not* the statistical mechanical point of view of Boltzmann, which he was still sceptical about when he wrote this textbook.
