Huxley Scientific Press is a small independent publisher, based in Oxford, which grew out of the success of a self-published booklet, The Oxford Science Walk, by Sophie Huxley. The booklet describes a walking tour of Oxford that focuses on the city’s scientific past and has achieved significant sales through local bookshops and museums, as well as through scientific conferences held in the city. Encouraged by this success, we embarked on further publications and currently have twelve titles on our list:
Our intention is to produce attractive and well-edited books on unusual scientific themes that will be both entertaining and instructive. At the same time, we hope to restore the traditional standards of editing and typographical design so lamentably lacking in the major Oxford publishing houses of today.
