Schwarzschild are being discussed. Biographical contributions deal with P.-F. Tonduti in Avignon, J. G. Doppelmayr in Nuremberg, C. F. Scheithauer in Chemnitz, J. W. H. Lehmann in the Brandenburg area as well as L. Weinek in Leipzig und Prag. An additional list of memorial places for astronomers in Berlin, Potsdam and surroundings, short contributions and book reviews conclude this volume.
