Illuminating instruments

11 November 2015


This 7th volume in the Artefacts series looks at a number of significant instruments that were created to serve various scientific purposes. The contributors examine the roles these instruments played both as scientific devices developed to advance our knowledge of the world and as cultural artifacts manufactured and used in specific settings. Klaus Staubermann has also written Chapter 2: Introduction; Chapter 4: Instrument and Image: inside the Nineteenth Century scientific lantern slide; and Chapter 14: Select Listing of Museum Instrument Collections.
