Catalogues of the History of Science Museum

Since 1991, the Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza has intensified its production of collection catalogues. In addition to the general catalogue of the Museum, scientific catalogues dedicated to the most important cores of the historical instruments collection have been published. These, edited by eminent Italian and foreign scholars, are published in English. They document not only the works on display to the public, but also the instruments kept in storage. In the Catalogues series, the following volumes have been published so far:
