This 7th volume in the Artefacts series looks at a number of significant instruments that were created to serve various scientific purposes.

Klaus Staubermann has also written Chapter 2: Introduction; Chapter 4: Instrument and Image: inside the Nineteenth Century scientific lantern slide; and Chapter 14: Select Listing of Museum Instrument Collections.
