Review:

"...a fitting tribute to a distinguished editor and a remarkable scholar. It will find its place in any good library for the history of science next to the eight volumes of 'The Mathematical Papers of Isaac Newton', which have become an essential reference for anyone interested in the history of scientific revolution." William R. Shea, Nature

"...a valuable reference for those libraries that maintain a collection in the history of methematics and science." Clair G. Wood, Science Books and Films
