La Science Amusante

La Science Amusante - 100 Nouvelles Experiences by Tom Tit (Arthur Good) with illustrations by Poyet was first published in the french magazine L'Illustration and later released in 3 sections between 1890 and 1893.

It was obviously aimed at youngsters, outlining how they could go about astounding their friends with feats involving static electricity, shadow effects, water tension, vacuums, balancing and other simple scientific phenomena.

La Science Amusante is online at the FullTable website, which has a slow server.
