The Vauxhall Operatory. A century of inventions before the Scientific Revolution.
By Guy M Wilson
An essay on the scientific revolution of the early Stuart period and a re-assessment of the Kalthoff family of gunmakers. The Vauxhall Operatory is revealed as an important link between the magical 'science' of the Elizabethan Renaissance and the empirical science of the English 'Scientific Revolution'. For those interested in firearms as well as those fascinated by the history of science and technology.
