Overview:

The Age of Wonder : In this ground-breaking group biography, award-winning author Richard Holmes charts the voyages of discovery - astronomical, chemical, poetical, philosophical - that make up this 'age of wonder.' From telescopic sight to miner's lamp, and from the first balloon flight to African exploration, it tells the stories of great innovations, and the inspired individuals behind them. Breathtaking in its originality and storytelling energy, The Age of Wonder is a radical vision of the meeting places of science and art, and an extraordinary evocation of an era of exploration, discovery and wonder..
