A Christmas Book from 1875
Greenslade, Thomas B., Jr.
Physics Teacher, v47 n9 p579-580 Dec 2009
This is a story about a book that I found in my collection, its author, and the boy who owned it. The book is "The Boy's Playbook of Science", first published in 1860 by John Henry Pepper (1821-1900). On the flyleaf is written "Arthur G. Webster; Christmas/75; from Mama." Arthur Gordon Webster (1863-1923) was one of the founders of the American Physical Society, and was 12 when he was given this book.
