title SUMMARY /title

The scholarly legacy of Derek Price resides in two archives one at La Villette near Paris and one at the Adler Planetarium Astronomy Museum in Chicago. The Adler archive is primarily photographic, comprising several thousand prints and hundreds of slides, lantern slides, and large-format transparencies. The largest subject categories are Astrolabes and Sundials. In addition to this photography, the archive includes sketches and photographs of the Antikythera mechanism and a written appraisal of the Adler collection circa 1960.
