Six titles in the acclaimed Wooden Books series appear here in one volume - a compendium of modern scientific knowledge.

From basic mathematical and physical formulae that govern much of our world, to the components of matter; from the structure of the cosmos to that of the human body - the discoveries and knowledge of scientists in the last millennium have been remarkable. Sciencia gathers together six individual volumes spanning the realms of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, evolution, and astronomy. Lavishly illustrated with engravings, woodcuts, and original drawings and diagrams, Sciencia will inspire readers of all ages to take an interest in the interconnected knowledge of the modern sciences. Beautifully produced in thirteen different colors of ink, Sciencia is an essential reference and an elegant gift.
