This is an auction for THE GREAT SCIENTISTS by John Farndon, Alex Woolf, Anne Rooney & Liz Gogerly. review:

"FIVE STARS!!! THE BEST OF THE BEST. The DK Eyewitness books belong in the personal library of every curious adult, all school libraries, and on the shelves of children seeking early knowledge in particular scientific fields. However, I make an exception for "Great Scientists." This is such an outstanding book, even for an outstanding series of books, that I cannot recommend it for everyone. "Great Scientists" is really for the curious who thirst for knowledge, who must know things. For science it is still an introduction, but an introduction to approximately 30 different fields. This book is not a stopping point, but a stepping stone to a greater destination. Most of the 30 scientists are given a two-page spread identifying them, their work, a timely chronology, sideline stories, and other related matter. The two-pages include photographs, illustrations, and text. Some of the scientists included:

Zhang Heng
William Harvey
Georges Cuvier
Charles Babbage
Louis Pasteur
Marie Curie
Albert Einstein
Edwin Hubble
Dorothy Hodgkin
Stephen Hawking

"The book concludes with a section on "Science and the future," offers milestones, lists websites to "Find out more," and discusses the Nobel Prize. "Great Scientists" is a book to have, not just to collect dust, but to take out and read and add to your store of knowledge. Perhaps it will influence a young mind to do great things!"
