Volume 1 of The Correspondence of John Tyndall published

From 2008 to 2010 I transcribed scores of letters by and to John Tyndall, knowing that they were slated for publication eventually. January 2015 saw the publication of the first volume of The Correspondence of John Tyndall, and the second volume will be published soon. And two more in 2016, and two more the next year, and so on. Eighteen volumes in all.

I am happy to share that I will return to working on the project, as a third co-editor for volume six (which will be published in 2017), with Darwin biographer Janet Browne and physicist Norman McMillan. The volume will cover the letters from¬†1856-1858. I will spend my time as co-editor largely look over the transcribed letters for accuracy with a fine-tooth comb. I’ll enjoy getting back into doing some history since I finished my masters degree in 2010, and am honored to have been asked to participate again.

You can check out the Amazon pages for the first two volumes. Too spendy for a personal library perhaps, but it would be great to request that your university library purchase the volumes, especially if there is a history of science department or emphasis. –> Volume 1¬†& Volume 2
