<title> SUMMARY </title>R. G. Boscovich's correspondence with scientists, men of learning, clergymen and politicians constitutes one of the most important instruments for improving knowledge on one of the most illustrious thinkers of the 18th century and for the study of his contributions to the development of the positive sciences, from astronomy to physics, optics and natural philosophy in the Age of Enlightenment.In consideration of the personality of the author, R. G. Boscovich's correspondence is very wide and is to be found in a great many different libraries and archives.This catalogue of letters represents a first attempt at supplying scholars with the elements necessary for locating Boscovich's correspondence, at least that part of it now available in the bestknown libraries and national archives.The author wishes to thank in advance all those who will be so kind as to point out errors in the catalogue or its indices as well as the existence of other letters, whether published or not, that do not appear in this catalogue.
