Editorial Reviews

Review

...this is a magnificent book; rich, accurate, skillful, informative and thought provoking. Jan van Maanen, Metascience 15, 2006 The work of Noel Malcolm and Jacqueline Stedall is a very welcome contribution to the history and philosophy of mathematics, and they are to be congratulated for producing such a thorough and important study Douglas M. Jesseph, Review Symposium Malcolm's edition of Pell's correspondence with Sir Charles Cavendish... should be regarded as one of the best intellectual biographies of recent years. Mordechai Feingold, Huntingdon Library Quarterly, Vol 69 no 3 ...Noel Malcolm and Jacqueline Stedall have joined forces to produce a triumph of cooperative scholarship, which reconstructs Pell's life, intellectual context and mathematics...The authors have turned the challenging nature of their subject to advantage, amply demonstrating that the proper object of intellectual history is not just famous names and winning theories, but extends to the unknown and unvalued. Their meticulous piecing together of the records brings to life a period of enormous intellectual productivity, detailing its richness and vivacity, the networks, the systems of patronage and self-promotion, with all their quirks and pitfalls. The British Journal for the History of Science

Format: Hardcover
This is just a comment from one of the authors. Ever since this book was published, Amazon has listed it as a 'Royal Microscopy Society Handbook'. !? It is not a handbook, it is not about microscopy, and it has nothing to do with the Royal Microscopy Society. The publishers have repeatedly asked Amazon to remove these false details, but they are still there. You may think this book is special-interest only, but, believe me, it isn't as specialized as that. Yours sincerely, Noel Malcolm (Ignore the star rating I give -- they just won't print this without one.)
