520    "Scientific Instruments between East and West is a 
       collection of essays on aspects of the transmission of 
       knowledge about scientific instruments and the trade in 
       such instruments between the Eastern and Western worlds, 
       particularly from Europe to the Ottoman Empire. The 
       contributors, from a variety of countries, draw on 
       original Arabic and Ottoman Turkish manuscripts and other 
       archival sources and publications dating from the 
       fifteenth to the twentieth centuries not previously 
       studied for their relevance to the history of scientific 
       instruments. This little-studied topic in the history of 
       science was the subject of the 35th Scientific Instrument 
       Symposium held in Istanbul in September 2016, where the 
       original versions of these essays were delivered"--
