Notes

First edition, first printing, of this biography of the Copernican Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), one of the great "martyrs of science", with an English translation of his greatest contribution to scientific and philosophical thought. Both Dorothea Waley Singer (1882-1964) and her husband Charles Singer were historians of medicine; Dorothea's study of pre-Renaissance scientific manuscripts at the British Museum brought to light over 30,000 manuscripts in the UK relating to science and medicine, which resulted in the Singer Collection at the British Library.
