"["Histories of Scientific Observation"] beautifully deconstructs the would-be monolith that is 'observation.' The editors and contributing authors . . . demystify a potentially overwhelming topic and show how the history of observation is not too long, too big, or too multifaceted to be unobservable. . . . The scrupulously structured plan of the book, so important to the success of any edited volume of this type, will no doubt make "Observation" a key text in the history of science."--Katie Zimmerman "Endeavour "
