Octavo Books practices a unique bookshop model, originated and run by Boris Jardine, a History of Science Curator at the Science Museum in London. Based on intensive historical research and drawing on a large private collection, Octavo offers only a few rare and important books at a time. A new web project is underway that will archive the work of running Octavo Books, sorting its research and images into a series of reading lists, syllabi and other resources.
