Science in Europe, 1500-1800

£19.99

Product description

The period from Copernicus to Newton witnessed a Scientific Revolution which eventually led to modern science and both built upon and sharply challenged the earlier natural philosophies of the classical world. Science in Europe, 1500-1800: A Primary Sources Readeroffers a fascinating picture of the world of the scientific revolution through the eyes of those involved. This selection of primary sources is geographically inclusive, including often-neglected areas such as Spain, Scandinavia and central-eastern Europe, and thematically wide-ranging, illustrating early modern Europe's interplay of social, cultural and intellectual traditions.A key resource for all students and teachers of the history of science, Malcolm Oster's masterly collection offers an introduction to the conceptual and institutional foundations of modern science.This volume can be used alongside or independently of its companion volume, Science in Europe: 1500-1800: A Secondary Sources Reader (also edited by Malcolm Oster).

This book is in good condition due to the number of creases on the front and rear covers. The front cover displays a considerable vertical crease almost parallel with the spine, most likely from handling (or the lack of good handling), and the top right corner has a noticeable corner crease. The rear cover also has some general damage near the spine, with a small 15mm tear at the top right. the base of the rear cover has a few more creases too. However, this is where the large majority of the damage ends, as the text block is largely clean besides some shelf wear on the top and base. The pages within are clean and well bound, and overall the book would most likely earn a "very good" rating if it wasn't for the exterior damage. There is no other damage to note.
