This collection of case studies explores interactions between scholars and craftsmen, natural philosophers and mathematical practitioners. Covering primarily sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century Britain, the volume makes occasional forays into French, Italian, and Dutch contexts. Lesser known mathematical practitioners, such as the Venetian physician-mathematician Ettore Ausonio and the London instrument maker Elias Allen, appear alongside Descartes and Galileo.
