SARTONIA cesse de paraître

Dédiée au gantois George Sarton, historien des sciences, professeur à Harvard, la revue Sartonia fut créée en 1966. Publiée très régulièrement sous la direction du Prof. Ir J. B. Quintyn de l’Université de Gand, cette revue fut, pendant quelques années, la seule publication périodique belge consacrée à l’histoire des sciences et des techniques.
Le numéro de décembre 1981 en sera la dernière livraison.
