The ANTIQUARIAN SCIENTIST, established in 1976, (visit our web site: www.antiquarianscientist.com), specializes in rare books in science, medicine, and technology. In addition, we offer antique scientific instruments, and appraisals and collection development in these specialty areas. Thus far we have published forty-two illustrated and annotated catalogues. We also co-published the print journal "Rittenhouse" devoted to the history of the scientific instrument enterprise in America. We are members of SNEAB (Southern New England Antiquarian Booksellers) and a number of professional societies relating to books, instruments, and the history of science and medicine. It has always been our policy to provide to our clients professional quality information and services.
