Both, however, are concerned to create and multiply virtual witnesses, whether for broad (public) or narrow (specialist) communities. Smith’s chapter addresses 16 Uncommon Contexts what may be witnessed and what should, not in the confines of the scientific laboratory but in the technological arena of the sea, considered as part of the field. In his reading, Conrad’s story Typhoon (1901) extends Shapin’s notion of witnessing to illustrate the limitations of human technological control, amidst a storm, and also the poverty of human knowledge – all at sea.

Having confessed her choice of reading to her master, she feels herself becoming the heroine of his story: ‘Pamela’s situation was fast becoming the cook’s situation’.
The textbook market had been enlarged and transformed by mid-century reforms uniting the different branches of the medical profession (physicians, surgeons, apothecaries) under a single authority overseeing education and licensing. 7 Despite this diversity of background and orientation, all of the authors claimed to address the ‘general reader’. 9 His works were issued by the leading medical publisher, John Churchill, while other authors were carried by large London houses: Maudsley by Macmillan, Spencer and Bain by Longmans.
