Summary:
"The emergence of natural science in the early modern period has been linked to the history of books, but this relationship is generally discussed in terms of texts. In contrast, the eleven essays in this volume consider the role of images and their relationship to text in the production and transmission of knowledge."--Page 4 of cover.
