The story of the development of Taylor and Francis in this text is more than an isolated account of one small company - it throws light on the whole process of scientific communication during the last 200 years. In this bicentenary edition the story of the company's growth from the launch of the "Philosophical Magazine" and other scientific periodicals and books, into a significant academic publishing player is brought within the context of late 20th-century innovation and expansion.
