        Subject: Babbage's ideas

Many here will, I expect, be interested in Simon Schaffer's "Ideas
embodied in metal: Babbage's engines dismembered and remembered", in
Joshua Nall, Lisa Taub and Frances Willmouth, eds., The Whipple Museum
of the History of Science: Objects and Investigations, to Celebrate the
75th Anniversary of R. S. Whipple's Gift to the University of Cambridge
(CUP, 2019), Chapter 6. The book is open access, accessible at:
