Description

Brief Description

This book, published in 2000, examines the intersection between science and books from early medieval times to the nineteenth century.

Learn More about the Book

The history of the sciences and the history of the book are complementary, and there has been much recent innovative research in the intersection of these lively fields. This accessibly-written, well-illustrated volume is the first systematic general work to do justice to the fruits of recent scholarship. The twenty specially-commissioned chapters cover the period from the Carolingian renaissance of learning to the mid-nineteenth-century consolidation of science, and examine all aspects of the authorship, production, distribution, and reception of manuscripts, books and journals in the various sciences.

Review Quotes

1. "The work is a valuable and readable introduction to many types of historical and textual studies. It is also copiously illustrated. The essays, written by well-known international scholars, are mainly introductions and could be important to professors who teach interdisciplinary graduate or undergraduates courses in the history of the book or in the history of ideas concerning scientific knowledge. This work would also be beneficial as a source for scholars who need clear, concise introductory material for other projects connected to book publication of the sciences...Frasca-Spada and Jardine have edited an extremely valuable and worthwhlie work. This book is a must for any research library and would be extremely valuable to scholars interested in the history of printing, publishing, or science. It would also be an excellent textbook for interdisciplinary graduates courses on nature of books and the history of science." Envoi Fall 2000

5. 'To the extent that Books and the Sciences in History shows that the history of the book has implications for the history of changes in disciplinary boundaries, it challenges the received view that the discipline of philosophy has always looked at the same kinds of problems and that the questions that perplex one generation are of interest to them all. Surely this book is a clear statement that intellectual historians of every stripe must look beyond the text to issues of context.' BJHS
