The Opposite Blackwell’s Academic Booksale

Autumn, 1995

Because of new procedures that have been introduced for accounting for stock together with the requirement that a charitable body should not run a trading facility at a loss, the Museum is obliged to look more carefully than formerly at the range of books stocked by the bookstall. The benefit to readers of Sphæra is that – while stocks last – we are offering the following titles at bargain prices. Please add £2.50 for postage and packing and send a cheque (made payable to the ‘Museum of the History of Science’) to the address below with your order.
