Inhaltsangabe: Finally this reference book is complete. Publication of volume 6 of the 8th Edition of Geigy Scientific Tables concludes several years' careful detailed work by teams of in-house and "outside" scholars charged by Ciba-Geigy with bringing up to date these compendia of scientific data. The editorial team has been disbanded; there will never be such a work again. The vast increase in the amount of material to be included has meant that the Geigy Scientific Tables have had to be steadily extended, with the result that they are too voluminous to be published in a single book. Dividing the work into six volumes has made it possible to incorporate additional chapters and has also helped to ensure that all the data are more complete and up to date than they could have been in a single volume. While the product of a drug house, the tables have no more than a bias towards data of use to those wanting information about the human condition. There is, for example, a definition of the speed of light in "Units of Measurement" (volume 1), a model of brevity and clarity; the second volume gives statistical tables which are of as much use in bringing quantitative rigour to the presentation of animal data or voting patterns in Nepal as to double blind-clinical trials.

Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
