"Many people will welcome and accept the verdicts of the foremost modern historian of meteorological instruments... His research sheds new light on many old arguments, and some conclusions differ so much from classic accounts that countless textbooks and reference works may need revision."

"This book traces in detail the invention and evolution of the thermometer... Fully documented, well written, and handsomely designed and illustrated... The book will be of interest to laymen and is a standard reference work for historians of science."
