To the Editor:—
The letters of Drs. Stenn (160:1090) and Gebhard (161:643 ), published in The Journal in the issues of March 24 and June 16, both failed to mention the Museum of the History of Science at Florence. In spite of the fact that it is just around the corner from the Uffizi Gallery, very few people seem to know about it. The museum has many of Galileo's mathematical instruments and, among other things, a considerable collection of medieval surgical and dental instruments.
