This copy of Wonder Stories by Francis Trevelyan Miller is HB without a DJ. It was published by The Christian Herald in 1913. Condition: Good--pages show slight handling; pages are nice and white (not tanned like most copies); there are a couple of splits where you see the webbing; binding tight; there is a last name written on the front end page; front cover has rubbing wear where some of the white paint? has come off; cornerwear on the covers; back cover has light soiling. 502 pages.
These Wonder Stories are entirely original . . . . It has been the purpose of Dr. Miller in wirting this fascinating book to tell only entertaining stories about everyday things. Plain truths are told, and there has been no effort to make a complete record, for such would require not one but many volumes. The technicalities of the scientist are purposely avoided and only the interesting phases are set forth in these pages. Great care has been taken, however, to preserve the accuracy of all the facts. . . . a treasure-house of human knowledge, human genius, and human achievement--all interwoven into stories that are as true as wonderful.
Here are a few of the wonderful stories inside:
The Story of the Aviator and the Ships that Fly in the Clouds
The Story of the Sewing-Machine and Woman's Emancipation
The Story of the Refrigerator and the Magical Ice
The Story of the Diver who Walks on the Bottom of the Sea
The Story of Modern Sanitation and Its Great Blessings
