How scientific instruments have changed hands by ICHST( )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays discusses the marketing of scientific and medical instruments from the eighteenth century to the First World War. The evidence presented here is derived from sources as diverse as contemporary trade literature, through newspaper advertisements, to rarely-surviving inventories, and from the instruments themselves. The picture may not yet be complete, but it has been acknowledged that it is more complex than sketched out twenty-five or even fifty years ago. Here is a collection of case-studies from the United Kingdom, the Americas and Europe showing instruments moving from maker to market-place, and, to some extent, what happened next

Working from original documents consulted for the first time, Brian Gee has uncovered the life and times of an eighteenth-century mathematical and optical instrument maker, Francis Watkins, who played an important role in one of the most significant legal cases to touch this profession, the patenting of the achromatic lens in telescopes. The book explains Watkins' origins and his partnership with the Dollond firm, who are shown to have been hard-headed and ruthless, before accounting for Watkins' successors and their ultimate decline

Photography and the doctor : John Adamson of St Andrews by A. D Morrison-Low( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2015 portraits by Dr John Adamson were displayed at the National Museum of Scotland exhibition 'Photography: A Victorian Sensation'. The audience response to these powerful works was such that this book has been produced, the first devoted to placing his work in its historical context and to acquainting a new audience with his work which, for conservation reasons, cannot be displayed all the time.0Dr Adamson (1809-70) was the older brother of the better known Robert Adamson (1821-48), famous for his pioneering photography work with D. O. Hill. John Adamson remained an amateur; his photography had to be fitted in around his busy medical practice in St Andrews. The photographs are drawn mainly from two extremely early and significant albums, presented to the Museum in the 1940s. An Appendix has technical information on, for example: camera obscura, lenses, daguerreotype, calotype, the albumen process, and the collodian negative process
