Launch of Martin Lister and His Remarkable Daughters
Bodleian Library Publishing launched Martin Lister and His Remarkable Daughters: The Art of Science in the Seventeenth Century by Anna Marie Roos at Blackwell's in High Holborn. Roos recently became professor of the history of science and medicine at the University of Lincoln. She is pictured with Samuel Fanous, Bodleian Library publisher.
Roos' book tells the story of how a scientific father and his two artistic daughters created the first comprehensive, illustrated account of the biology of molluscs.
