John Holmes' The Pre-Raphaelites and Science wins The British Society for Literature and Science Prize

The British Society for Literature and Science book prize is awarded for the best book in the field of literature and science.

"The Pre-Raphaelites and Science is a beautifully written and illustrated book which synthesizes a remarkable range of fields to produce a rich exploration of artistic and scientific relations in the nineteenth century. The book makes a substantial contribution to the history of literature, art, science and museums, and will raise awareness amongst scholars  and more general readers of the critical insights which arise from a literature and science approach." - The British Society for Literature and Science Prize
