In addition, as a special service to the scientific community, Annalen der Physik proudly announces the publication of a Supplement(*) of approximately 585 pages, free of charge for our subscribers, and also available later in book form: This Supplement, compiled by J. Renn (Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin) as guest editor, features four articles(**) which examine Einstein's contributions from an historical point of view, as well as facsimiles of all 49 Einstein Annalen papers, published in the period 1901-1922. Both, 'Special Issue' and 'Supplement' will be published end of February 2005, and be delivered to the Berlin conference of the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (see: www.dpg-einstein.de) which opens on 4 March 2005.
