Description

Colour Plates, First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

The two volume first edition of Charles Singer's study of the history of science, with the first volume published in 1917, and the second in 1921.

Singer was a British historian of science, technology and medicine, who also served as a medical officer in the British Army in the final years of the First World War, and edited these works, which provide a detailed insight into the history of scientific progress and advancement, with particular emphasis on the history of medicine

Illustrated with forty-one plates to volume I and fifty-five to volume II, with many of these in colour. Collated, complete.

Stamps of the University of Reading Library to the verso of the title page of each volume, and no further library markings.

At the time of publication, the leading science journal 'Nature' remarked that this is a 'remarkable' work, due largely to Singer's time spent 'unearthing for convenient reference the medical historical treasures of the Bodleian Library'.
