Acknowledgments

The production of this volume has been a truly collaborative effort, first and foremost between the three co-authors. A very large number of friends, colleagues, librarians and previously unknown helpers have also come to our aid to complete the project. We are truly grateful for their help. Without them, we would not have been able to gather all the data that we are presenting here.

During the process of research and writing, the authors received very helpful advice from a number of friends and colleagues. Lauren Kassell and Monique Kornell closely followed the development of this project, read the complete manuscript, and offered useful advice to improve on the text. Our argument benefitted from conversations with and the support of Monica Azzolini, Mario Biagioli, Maurits Biesbrouck, Ann Blair, Marius Buning, Frederick Clark, Sven Dupré, Caroline Duroselle-Melish, Ioannis Evrigenis, Márton Farkas, Mechthild Fend, Christine Ferdinand, Sietske Fransen, Richard Gaskell, Roelof van Gelder, Gábor Gelléri, Francis van Glabbeek, Christine Göttler, Anne Goldgar, Michael Gordin, Anthony Grafton, Robrecht van Hee, Marieke Hendriksen, Nick Hopwood, Anna Jones, Eric Jorink, Vera Keller, Sachiko Kusukawa, Scott Mandelbrote, José Ramon Marcaida, Hannah Marcus, Alexander Marr, Madeline McMahon, Wijnand Mijnhardt, Hannah Murphy, Barbara Naddeo, Isaac Nakhimovsky, Ilja Nieuwland, Djoeke van Netten, Vivian Nutton, Richard Oosterhoff, Katharine Park, Katalin Pataki, Pasquale Porro, Katherine Reinhart, Arlene Shaner, Lisa O’Sullivan, Evan Ragland, Chitra Ramalingam, Jenny Rampling, Bill Rankin, Dunstan Roberts, Tricia Ross, Irina Savinetskaya, Simon Schaffer, James Secord, Arlene Shaner, Nancy and Nobu Siraisi, Omer Steeno, Michael Stolberg, Jean Strouse, Claudia Swan, Liba Taub, Michael Tworek, Koen Vermeir, Arnoud Visser, Jacqueline Vons, Andrew Wear, Nick Wilding, Joanna Woodall, Alexander Wragge-Morley, Elizabeth Yale, Caroline Yerkes, Gabriella Zuccolin, Huib Zuidervaart, and audiences at a variety of conferences and lectures. We would like to thank Anna Becker in Basel, Felicia Gottmann and James Livesey in Dundee, Christian Weikop in Edinburgh, and the staff of the British School at Rome for their kind support. We also learned much from talking to a variety of rare book sellers and auction houses, including Antiquariat Inlibris, Arader Galleries, Hugues de Latude, H. M. Fletcher, Roger Gaskell, Jonathan Hill, Martayan Lan, Jeremy Norman, Jeschke van Vliet, Rick Watson, Dominic Winter, and staff at Christie’s, the Dorotheum, Sotheby’s, Swann and Bonham’s. Lisa Blaker provided essential administrative assistance, Gabrielle Fox helped with research, Stephanie Frow gave us a hand with coding and managing our database, Roberta Schiralli at Brill assisted us with securing imaging rights, Rachel Donohue-Doppler and Peter Angelinas helped set up a database at an early stage. At Brill, we are especially grateful to Marti Huetink and Rosanna Woensdregt for shepherding the book through the production process. We want to warmly thank the two reviewers, whose comments were invaluable in shaping the final version of this text.

Dániel Margócsy would like to thank Anna Cieslik and Emil and Lily Margócsy for traveling across the world in pursuit of Fabricas, and his parents, Edit and István Margócsy, for support and research help. He is grateful for the support of his colleagues at the Department of History at Hunter College—City University of New York, and, now, at the University of Cambridge’s Department of History and Philosophy of Science. He also wants to acknowledge the support of the PSC-CUNY Research Award (TRADB-47-268), the Franklin Research Grant of the American Philosophical Society, and the publication support of the Department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Cambridge. A part of this volume was written while Daniel enjoyed the hospitality of the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Studies in Wassenaar. Mark Somos would like to thank his wife, Marketa Klicova, and their children, Philip Hunter and Emma Eva Meike Somos. He is grateful to the British School at Rome, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, and the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg for their financial and cognitive support. Stephen Joffe would like to thank his wife Sandra Joffe and his children Craig and Heidi. The authors acknowledge the support of the Joffe Foundation, Cincinnati, OH 45243, USA.

A special thanks goes to all the collectors, bibliophiles and owners of the Fabrica who have allowed us to study and analyze their exemplars. A number of scholars supported our project by checking for Fabricas wherever they went. We wish to thank especially Katarzyna Cieślik, Gábor Gelléri, Monique Kornell, Sachiko Kusukawa, Hannah Marcus, Florin-Stefan Morar, Vivian Nutton, Irina Savinetskaya, who each checked a large number of exemplars for us. Krzysztof Nierzwicki, who has been working on a Polish census, graciously shared his results with us, and provided essential help in Poland. We are equally thankful to Zlatko Pozeg, who generously shared information on his research on a census of the Fabrica. We would also like to emphasize how grateful we are to all the libraries and other repositories that have given us permission to publish images of the Fabricas in their collections.
