## Abstract

Once in Bristol, Fröhlich finished his book on the electron theory of metals (*Elekronentheorie der Metalle* [F(*i*)]) in September 1936, having signed the contract already in 1934. It was published the following month by Springer, who had by then moved to Vienna, as Volume XVIII of their Monograph Series ‘Structure & Properties of Matter’: the Vienna Editor was H. Mark (vide Chap. 3). Although unable to arrange any royalties, Springer did pay him a generous advance amounting to a few thousand marks.
