This is an auction for THE OXFORD COMPANION TO THE HISTORY OF MODERN SCIENCE, edited by J. L. Heilbron.

"Containing 609 encyclopedic articles written by more than 200 prominent scholars, this book presents an unparalleled history of the field invaluable to anyone with an interest in the technology, ideas, discoveries, and learned institutions that have shaped our world over the past five centuries. Focusing on the period from the Renaissance to the early twenty-first century, the articles cover all disciplines (Biology, Alchemy, Behaviorism), historical periods (the Scientific Revolution, World War II, the Cold War), concepts (Hypothesis, Space and Time, Ether), and methodologies and philosophies (Observation and Experiment, Darwinism). Coverage is international, tracing the spread of science from its traditional centres and explaining how the prevailing knowledge of non-Western societies has modified or contributed to the dominant global science as it is currently understood. Revealing the interplay between science and the wider culture, the COMPANION includes entries on topics such as minority groups, art, religion, and science's practical applications. One hundred biographies of the most iconic historic figures, chosen for their contributions to science and the interest of their lives, are also included. Above all THE OXFORD COMPANION TO THE HISTORY OF MODERN SCIENCE is a companion to world history: modern in coverage, generous in breadth, and cosmopolitan in scope. 100 black-and-white illustrations and an eight-page colour section capture the eye and spark the imagination.”
