about this item

Nine papers from annual symposia of the Scientific Instrument Commission--but mostly from the July 2009 symposium held in Budapest--explore the movement of scientific instruments to the market place and beyond. The topics include selling by the book: British scientific trade literature after 1800, some considerations about the prices of physics instruments in the 19th century, mathematical instruments changing hands at world fairs 1851-1904, European pocket sundials for colonial use in American territories, and trade in medical instruments and colonialist policies between Mexico and Europe during the 19th century.
