Cambridge Illustrated History of the World's Science - Colin A. RonanBook Club Associates, 1983, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. Dustwrapper snagged at head of spine with two closed slits to the upper panel. Text bright and tight. More than acceptable reference copy.
From the cover: “Uniquely among general surveys, it covers all the pure sciences and every major scientific civilization from ancient China to the present. The text unravels the strands of the development of Western science while at the same time presenting the science of each age as intrinsic to that age. Colin Ronan provides this introduction in a form surprisingly easy to assimilate, even to the least ‘scientific’ mind. The 300 photographs cover the sciences of every period and form a valuable collection of scientific illustrations; and the text is thoroughly cross-referenced to assist the reader in tracing the story of many details throughout history.”
