An essential reference for collectors, dealers, or institutions interested in scientific instruments from this period. Each maker entry identifies different addresses and when the manufacturer operated there, related firms that both preceded and followed each firm, and the types of items made where known, etc. Many primary sources are cited as well. An impressive piece of scholarship, and one we use regularly.
