Micrographia new Folio Society edition

#1 Post by rcjp » Wed Sep 21, 2022 4:32 pm


just thought members might be interested that the Folio Society (no affiliation) has a new edition of Robert Hooke's Micrographia.

They printed a luxury version a few years back, it was around £200 I think. I missed my chance to get one at the time and the second hand copies are even more expensive as it was a limited production run. This new version is £75 and slightly smaller. I've just received my copy today and very pleased with it so far. Of course the digital copy is available online free for anyone who wants it, but a physical copy with fold out prints is far more enjoyable.

For those who can't justify the expense but still want to read it: https://archive.org/details/mobot317530 ... 7/mode/2up
A beautiful work and something which I feel all interested in general microscopy should look at at least once.
