This hard cover book is 183 pages in length including a three page index. Projects are illustrated with pen and ink drawings throughout. Some of my favorite toys are the electrical dragon-fly and bee, experiments with rubber threads and a self regulating platinum lamp.
This rare vintage book has blue cloth covers and a white title. The cover's title has been rubbed off and not much of it remains. The inside of the book is in good condition. There is a split at the inside front cover and the first page but the page is intact. The pages are yellowed from age but are clean and very legible. The back cover has some names written in pencil. The binding is tight.
