This issue contains individual articles on photonic technologies, on a Soviet Encyclopedia, on a geology textbook and on Chinese mathematics as well as an ESHS lecture on note taking and paperwork in histories of early modern science.

After some stage setting by the Editor of Centaurus, this text gives the presidents’ personal perspectives on the background of the ESHS, their involvement in the society, their vision for the future as well as the opportunities and challenges they see going forward.
