Description:

3rd edition, with corrections and additions. Arabella Burton Buckley (1840–1929) was a British writer and popularizer of science. This work, her first book (the first edition was published in 1876), was intended 'to supply that modest amount of scientific information which everyone ought to possess, while, at the same time, it will form a useful groundwork for those who wish afterwards to study any special branch of science' (p. x) and as such was praised by Charles Darwin. (ODNB)

[Freeman, 561]
