BULLETIN 139 – December 2018

In time for Christmas, here is Bulletin #139, featuring a wealth of instrumental material. The cover story is Stuart Talbot’s essay on a fascinating 17th-century telescope. We also have Silke Ackermann’s Gerard Turner Memorial Lecture, on ‘Islamic Science’ in the museum, and Part II of Huib Zuidervaart’s monumental essay on the life and work of Johan van der Wyck (1623–1679) – both free to download.
