Does anyone know of documentation on the steps and process Heaviside used to express Maxwell's Equations in vector notation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm not looking for Maxwell's papers (I've read some and don't understand the notation) and I'm not looking for modern expressions of Maxwell's eq. (available in any E&M textbook) but a sort of blow by blow of the translation of notation.

This is more of an historical interest rather than practical.

(One of the smartest RF engineers I know tried to do his own translation for 'fun' and gave up. I'm sure it's beyond me.)
