Essential reference for the history of Dutch science Jun 11, 1999
This is the place to start when you are looking for information about the history of science in the Netherlands. This book is a combination of new work and 're-cycled' material from older books, including Van Berkel's overview of Dutch Science from 1985, 'De voetsporen van Stevin'. Although the quality of the presented work is high, so, unfortunately, is the price; almost two hundred dollars is outrageous for such an essential work (especially when you realise that the technical quality of the volume is mediocre: normal paper, no color reproductions), but regrettably typical for this publisher; so most people will have to go to the library to read this work.
