Many of the world's most important scientific advances were made in the 19th century, as indicated in this overview of instruments to measure time, weight, heat, sound, electricity, etc. The last chapter discusses "recreational science" or experiments performed by the layman for fun. The author, whose middle name is L'Estrange, has written extensively about antique scientific instruments and their makers.
