Happy and somber days in London

In London last week. Spent a couple of happy days in the British Library. Also saw Three Days in May. At the Library, besides trawling through old copies of New Scientist and visiting the manuscripts exhibition (see below and below) I looked up: Einstein quotations, mid-20th century references to the canals of Mars, and John Dover Wilson’s 1936 edition of Hamlet.

Might have something to say about all of these in due course, as well as explaining why I visited this memorial, beside Tower Hill tube station, to merchant seamen who perished in the First World War:-
