Abstract

The History of Science Digital Collection presents some of Utah State University’s most beautiful and significant scientific treasures, many of them from the Merrill-Cazier Library’s recently acquired Peter W. van der Pas history of science collection, a treasure-trove of titles showing the development of scientific thought. Focusing on it's rarest, most exquisitely illustrated books from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, this collection offers works by such major figures in the history of scientific inquiry as Otto Brunfels, Charles Darwin, Erasmus Darwin, Carolus Linnaeus Antony van Leeuwenhoek, Jan Swammerdam, James Sowerby, Andreas Vesalius, and others.
