  1. Those are awesome — thanks so much for linking this!

  2. I couldn’t resist. As you say they are excellent. The book was published in conjunction with a three volume series by Romanes. Books one and three of the series are available via google books. Book two, unfortunately, is not.

  3. Great History of Science subject! Thanks a lot!
