I know nowt about the publishing game but it always puzzles me how manuscripts by prominent people can languish in the safes of crusty societies or stately homes for centuries and not be seen by a wider public. There's always the hope that there are "specialists" out there who would see significance that's been missed by the few curators that have seen them. A "new" Stukeley manuscript was published about a year ago, complete with diagrams on stone-moving, a variation on stone rowing, filched from Newton I suspect. Fancy that being unavailable for centuries! Gordon Pipes should have had that available to him.
