Taylor & Francis

In Chapter 11 I have described how, after the war, I became interested in scientific publishing and was editor of the Philosophical Magazine, a scientific journal published by Taylor & Francis† since 1798. 'Philosophical' of course meant Natural Philosophy, what we now call science. The managing director when I first knew the firm was George Courtney-Coffey, an engaging character with considerable charisma and shrewdness but with little idea of what science was about.
