    Begins by suggesting that 'from the number and tenour of letters received on the subject, the love of Natural History in some form is possessed by almost every one who is not devoid of intellect and observation. But very many of those who try to give practical effect to their wishes seem to fail at the very outset, and then are discouraged, and leave the study to others whom they believe to be more gifted than themselves' (3). Insists that this is especially the case with marine zoology and describes the typical experiences of a boy wishing to explore this topic on the shore, drawing attention to some of the wondrous botanical and zoological specimens that can be found in these locations. Advises on the best equipment and techniques for pursuing shore-hunting.

    Describes the journey of Mr and Mrs Weldon to New Zealand. Includes the character of Cousin Benedict who accompanied the Weldons on their voyage, but who 'spent his whole time' on natural history, specifically on all the classes of 'articulata'—'the insecta, the myriapoda, the arachnida, the crustacea, the cirrhopoda, and the anelides'. Notes his inability to distinguish various species of this class, adding that he 'was an amateur entomologist, and nothing more'. Proceeds to describe entomology as a 'wide science', but points out that Cousin Benedict 'was an entomologist only in the limited sense of the popular acceptation of the word'—'an observer and collector of insects'. Despite the fact that Benedict was only interested in the insecta, stresses that this class comprises ten orders in which there are tens of thousands of species. Proceeds to describe some of Benedict's scientific habits including the pins that he carried about his person 'in readiness for the capture of specimens', and his tendency to guard his specimen box. (14) The illustration shows Benedict in his study—a bearded, bespectacled character at his desk where he inspects one of his insects with a magnifying glass. On the wall behind him are displays of his insects, while on his desk sits a pin cushion.

. Describes Wedgwood's early life, his education, apprenticeship and the establishment of his celebrated firm. Notes how Wedgwood worked hard in the study of chemicals and new apparatus to improve the quality of cream-coloured ware. Also emphasises that his industry was 'incessant', that he loved truth 'in everything, great or small', that he was always 'modest and kind', and that 'His failures were stepping-stones to triumphs'. (165) The illustrations show Wedgwood as a middle-aged man, the young Wedgwood 'at the bench'.

    Includes a detailed description of Cousin Benedict's exploration of a giant evacuated ant-hill where Benedict and his fellow travellers sought refuge after a severe African tempest. Benedict reports his discovery of the 'termites' "store-house"' (which was a receptacle for 'a considerable quantity of gum and vegetable juices') and attempts to interest his friends in the importance of the fact that the hills are deserted. (443) Later Benedict holds forth on the subject of termites, describing their classification, anatomy and habits, and emphasising the fierce ''sirafoos'' species of termite which frighten even the lion, and the immense fecundity of the female termite. The illustrations show the dark cavern where 'Cousin Benedict's curiosity was awakened', and the naturalist crouched on the floor of the cavern 'fairly mounted on a favourite hobby'—lecturing on entomology. (444)

    Champions Verne as a 'household name with the boys of England—young and old', and as a writer of 'thrilling scientific romances' who 'knows everything', who 'seizes the latest scientific discovery, and weaves it so deftly in his magic web, that however wonderful it may have appeared or however far-fetched, it takes its place naturally in the daily routine of his little world of fancy'. Stresses further the range of Verne's scientific interests (from the 'depths of the ocean' to 'a journey to the moon'). (445) Proceeds to a short account of Verne's life, although it cannot account for his turn to 'writing a scientific romance', but suggests that this might have been caused by 'the progress which has been made in the sciences within recent years', which 'fired his strong imagination'. Lists several of his major works and proceeds to address the question of 'what use these scientific romances serve'. Replies by insisting that such works are 'directly beneficial' and satisfy 'the most exacting appetite for what is marvellous, whilst [Verne] opens before the minds of his readers possibilities of scientific triumphs that must make them think'. Also praises Verne's works for making 'the mere idler an object of contempt' and believes his portrait shows 'power and intelligence and purpose'. (446)

    Begins by lamenting the fact that 'such wonderful, interesting, and profitable insects as bees seem quite neglected' from the range of 'creatures which boys make a practice of keeping or petting' (477). Outlines the advantages of keeping bees rather than other pets and concludes by remarking that it will 'not trouble the reader with scientific descriptions and learned terms, for our aim is, as all boys will desire, a thoroughly practical one', and invites readers to consult 'any good book on insects' or an encyclopaedia for information of 'a strictly entomological kind' (478).

    Similar to the argument he developed to justify killing insects, the author upholds the scientific grounds for taking birds' eggs for scientific collecting purposes. Insists that bird-nesting is not cruel, and that egg-collectors 'will neither destroy eggs nor meddle with the young birds when hatched'. Points out that birds lose count of the number of eggs that they have laid, and proceeds to advise on the best way of taking eggs without 'injuring or destroying the nest', and of treating the eggs. (478)

    Describes some of the mishaps in the life of Billy Bungle, the 'duffer' at the author's school. These include the occasion when Billy 'nearly succeeded in blowing himself and three or four of us up by mixing certain combustibles together by mistake'. Later proceeds to the moral of his 'discourse' which is that 'Don't despair if you are a duffer, for you may cure yourself of it, if you will only think and take your time'. Counsels his readers by describing how the 'great philosopher' Isaac Newton Newton, Sir Isaac (1642–1727) DSB

'once appeared in the light of a great duffer' because he foolishly made a large and a small hole in his door to allow his cat and kitten pass through. Believes this shows that 'without care any one may belong to that class' of duffers. (503) The illustrations show several boys standing before an exploding chemistry experiment, and Newton's infamous cat and kitten door-holes.

    Describes the African captivity of Mrs Weldon, Cousin Benedict and their friends. Cousin Benedict can think of nothing but the entomological riches to be found in Africa and the 'wonderful discoveries' that could be made if his captors would let him. Points out that Benedict would have been 'the most contented of men' had it not been for the loss of his magnifying glass—a loss which means that Benedict must poke every insect 'almost into his eyes' before discovering its characteristics. Adds that Benedict's 'keepers knew him well enough to be satisfied that he would make no attempt to escape' because the enclosure in which he was captured 'afforded him a very fair scope for his researches'. (563) The illustration shows Benedict in the midst of his search for entomological specimens.

    Describes the entomological activities of Cousin Benedict in captivity. Notes his pursuit of various insects and the large number of mosquito bites that he had acquired during his travels. Proceeds to detail Benedict's pursuit of a prized specimen of hexapod which entangled itself in the entomologist's hair and then traversed his face. He attempts to grasp the insect when it reaches his nose but misses it, and then follows it, on all fours, to a subterranean tunnel that led out of the enclosure. His subsequent overland pursuit of the insect, however, proves unsuccessful when one of the guards of the enclosure seizes him, thus destroying Benedict's 'chance of being the happiest of entomologists' (606). The illustrations show Benedict in pursuit of the hexapod and being captured.

    Describes Cousin Benedict's determination to produce 'an elaborate treatise upon the "Hexapodes Benedictus" hitherto unknown to entomological research'. Although he relishes the fact that he has the magnifying glasses and other 'proper appliances' to undertake this research, he is horrified to discover that the hexapod is 'a common spider' which dealt a 'blow to his aspiration' to have his 'name high in the annals of science'.

, praised Dick's industry and the fact that 'this baker knew infinitely more of botanical science [...] than I did'. Proceeds to describe Dick's early life in Scotland which was apparently 'sad and very lonely', owing to the death of his mother when he was young. During his time at school, he showed an enthusiasm for reading and the natural world of the mountain-side near his home, although he had to endure a tyrannical step-mother. He was then apprenticed to a baker, a gruelling existence in spite of which time he managed to observe 'regularly and closely the changes on the face of nature', learn the names of plants from the Edinburgh Encyclopaedia Brewster, David 1808–30.

he 'took great delight' in reading but which he thought contained theories that were challenged by some of his fossil finds. Describes the close correspondence between Dick and Miller, and Dick's humility, modesty, retiring nature, and reluctance to publish. Goes on to describe the decline of his bakery business (caused partly by shipwrecked flour)—circumstances forcing Dick to sell his fossil collection and to read 'geological news' in 'papers like the Athenaeum Athenaeum (1828–1900+) Waterloo Directory

' rather than purchasing books. The author admires Dick's 'sturdy' refusal of the gift of whisky from his brother-in-law, and laments the way in which Dick's health finally broke down owing to overwork. (685) Describes how in 1866 Dick took his 'last walk' in a quarry to search for fossils, and died shortly afterwards. Emphasises that the clergyman attending him on his deathbed described him as 'the most humble believer he ever met' and someone 'who had learned to look from Nature up to Nature's God'. (686)

    Includes a discussion between the author, Axels, Curry, Parsons and several other characters on how far it was possible to see from a given height. They establish the height of a mountain that Curry's father claimed he saw from the deck of a ship at 125 miles, the character Parsons holding forth on the curvature of the earth. Later they discuss the distance and surface of the sun and after Axels reflects on 'What a wonderful thing sight is!', Parsons points out how long it takes for light to travel from the earth to the sun (693). The character Smart adds that he has read of natives of a country who cut out sensory organs from bodies in order to see, taste, and hear things at a distance. Later in their travels the characters attempt to measure the height of a mountain but the lack of sun prevents them. At this point the author explains how readers can measure the depth of a well or precipice by counting the time it takes for a stone to fall, and refers readers to a relevant article in the periodical (Author of "Mind Your Own Business", etc., 'Ups and Downs', Boy's Own Paper, 1 (1879), 299–300). Subsequently Axels tries to borrow a barometer to take the measurement but in failing this, he and the other boys ascend the mountain. The author intervenes again with a discussion of the myths surrounding the origin of boulders. He insists that the 'real history of these enormous "marbles" is quite as wonderful' as stories of them being the playthings of giant, and explains how boulders are brought to the mountain by icebergs in the 'glacial epochs, before the creation of man' (693–94).

    Begins by explaining the Latin name and natural historical classification of the weasel but points out that 'I do but mention these facts parenthetically, for I would be very sorry indeed to frighten the reader at the outset with a lot of break-jaw Latin words, which would only serve to remind him of school hours and the desk, instead of green fields, waving trees, purling brooks, and all things that tend to make life in the country so thoroughly enjoyable' (746).

    Begins by pointing out that he is bending 'to the pressure of opinion' which claims that 'boy students of chemistry like nothing so well as coloured fires, bangs, and abominable smells'. Proceeds to describe how to make lead tartrate which, when burnt, demonstrates the author's argument that 'in minute chemical division', this compound 'is more combustible than wood'. (757)

    Begins by recounting the wonderment with which 'a young astronomer' of the author's acquaintance observed several planets through a telescope. Notes that such sights brought to his mind 'those words of the sweet singer of Israel, "The heaven declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handiwork". Noting the strange way in which observations through reflecting telescopes are undertaken through a tube at the side of the instrument, proceeds to a brief account of the origin of telescopes. This claims that Roger Bacon Bacon, Roger (c. 1219–c. 1292) DSB

brought the telescope 'into practical use'. Details the ways in which Galileo constructed his telescope and the celestial objects he saw through what the author considers to be a crude instrument. Notes that the 'principal professor of philosophy' at the University of Padua Università degli Studi di Padova

refused to believe in the existence of moons around other planets, and that Galileo's claims to this effect were denounced by priests. (805) Outlines the story of Galileo's imprisonment and refusal to renounce his belief in the movement of the earth. Goes on to explain the optical principles of refracting telescopes but points out that astronomer's need for greater magnifying power was met by Isaac Newton Newton, Sir Isaac (1642–1727) DSB

and his reflecting telescope. Having explained how the problem of chromatic aberration was resolved by John Dollond Dollond, John (1706–61) DSB

in whose library Herschel studied assiduously. Notes how Herschel continued his musical career at Bath where he first turned a telescope to the heavens, and, owing to the cost of telescopes, resolved to build his own. Emphasises the 'skill and perseverance' with which Herschel pursued his telescope-building, and notes that his courage in overcoming difficulties was rewarded by the observation of Saturn's rings and satellites. Notes how Herschel used to 'steal away' from concerts to continue his astronomical work. (806) Concludes with a description of Herschel's construction of a twenty-foot reflector and the fact that such labours were rewarded with the discovery of Uranus—one which vastly increased the size of the known solar system. The illustrations include a reproduction of the Friedrich Rehberg Rehberg, Friedrich (1758–1835) WBI

patronage of Herschel, and the astronomer's move to Slough and publication of an 'eagerly read' paper. Describes how Herschel used this patronage in the construction of his new instrument—a forty foot telescope with a speculum mirror of over four foot diameter, and which was so powerful that distant stars observed through it approached like 'the rising sun'. Explains the optical reasons why users of this instrument had to turn their backs to the heavens, and stresses that while the telescope enabled Herschel and his son, John F W Herschel Herschel, Sir John Frederick William (1792–1871) DSB ODNB

, to observe 'the six moons of Uranus', its power was limited by the effect of the atmosphere and its cumbersome weight. Points out that Herschel did most of his work with an instrument of approximately seven-foot focal length, and describes how, in the course of 39 years, he discovered such celestial bodies as 'eight smaller planets' and several comets. (820) Waxes lyrical about the power of his instruments, and emphasises the considerable chemical and mechanical skill that Herschel commanded to produce a high quality mirror. Proceeds to a brief account of 'that other great telescope', that of William Parsons (3rd Earl of Rosse) Parsons, William, 3rd Earl of Rosse (1800–67) DSB

at Parsonstown in Ireland. Notes how Rosse excelled in mathematics at school and on succeeding to the peerage in 1841 'immediately set about the construction of the telescope which had been the dream of his youth'. Describes the machinery, labour, and money (£30,000) needed to produce this fifty-four foot reflector which 'penetrated much farther into space than Herschel's, and revealed mysteries that were supposed to be beyond the power of man to solve'. Concludes with a description of the dismantling of Herschel's giant telescope, and of the death of its maker. Emphasises that Herschel possessed an unsurpassed 'sense of the wisdom and power of God'. (821) The illustrations show Herschel's home at Slough and his forty-foot reflector.
