Description: "The life-blood of scientific activity is in exploring all parts of the universe — even the tiny parts represented by atoms — and explaining the events that take place. Though individual atoms cannot be seen, they are the basis of all matter. And in the search for more information about atoms, scientists gradually came upon new knowledge about the energy within. This book tells this wonderful story."
Stunning, technicolour and b&w illustrations – many of which are full-page – bring the book to life.
Pictorial covers are in excellent condition and – apart from some negligible scuffing along the top – are free from all defect. Internally, the lightly tanned pages are crisp, clean, and haven't a single speck of foxing.
Measures 27.5 cm × 20.5 cm (11″ × 8.2″). Large 4to. 48 pp.
