“The volume reads well, and constitutes a valuable addition to our understanding of the role of mathematics at the time of the Scientific Revolution.” (Mihnea Dobre, Early Science and Medicine, Vol. 24, 2019)

“This book shows that diverse and new historiographical approaches to the study of practical mathematics should be considered. Historians of science, especially those interested in the Scientific Revolution and the history of mathematics, will find this book and its ground-breaking approach of particular interest.” (Argante Ciocci, Nuncius, Vol. 33 (3), November, 2018)

“This slim yet wide-ranging volume offers compelling perspectives for broadening the scholar/craftsman debate. It is relevant to anyone studying the history of science in early modern Europe. As a whole, the essays capture the complexities of the theoretical, practical, and material concerns of mathematical practitioners and invite further discussion.” (Catherine Abou-Nemeh, ISIS, Vol. 109 (2), June, 2018)

“Mathematical Practitioners and the Transformation of Natural Knowledge in Early Modern Europe is a collection of nine papers from various authors from around the globe. … I do believe that this text could be a good supplement for students, and I firmly believe that this could be very useful for any professor looking for additional historical content.” (Brent Kelderman, MAA Reviews, June, 2017)
