I have a bias for books such as this because I like to know how our understanding of science progressed. And explanations for children also indicate the progression of education. This book appears to be an excellent 1910 snapshot for both interests. This ebook even has the illustrations, which seems rare for free ebook-versions of very old books. However, the illustrations would be more valuable if they were large enough to easily read labels, which is likely not a problem with hardcopies of the book. As usual this free ebook also includes many scanning errors that are irritating. At least such errors do NOT prevent understanding. The 4-star rating averages 5 stars I would probably award the hardcopy and 3 stars I award the ebook.
