Holmes, Richard

The Age of Wonder

HarperPress, 2009

Mr Holmes introduces you to the leading scientists of the Second Scientific Revolution in Britain. Even if you never liked science at school you will enjoy this skillful and witty description of an amazing time and its thrilling discoveries. The book is a must-read for every Regency Enthusiast.

The book was helpful for writing my post “The Girl, the Kite and the Eccentric Inventor”.
