The age of wonder : how the Romantic generation discovered the beauty and terror of science

Holmes, Richard, 1945-2009
Books
'The Age of Wonder' is Richard Holmes' first major work of biography for a decade. It has been inspired by the scientific ferment that swept through Britain at the end of the 18th century, and which Holmes now radically redefines as 'the revolution of Romantic science'.
