THE Scientific Instrument Commission of the International Union of the History and Philosophy of Science has recently published a ‘Classified Bibliography on the History of Scientific Instruments’. Prepared by Gerard Turner and David Bryden, it covers the period from 1980 to 1995 and is based on the annual listings formerly prepared by Professor Turner and distributed by the Commission.
These listings will continue, but in future they will be prepared by the Museum. The staff of the Museum would be happy to hear from anyone with suggestions of items for inclusion – possible titles should be sent to the Librarian at the Museum’s address given below.
Copies of the current bibliography can also be ordered from the Museum, for a cost of £5 including surface postage to anywhere in the world. Orders should be sent to the Secretary and cheques made payable to ‘University of Oxford’.
