This edition of “Endless Amusement” dates to 1828 and features a collection of nearly 400 entertaining experiments in various branches of science, magic and fireworks.

A 5th edition copy, it retains the important pull-out illustrated diagram which is often missing from editions of this book.

Pretty cool stuff!
