A psuedo-Autobiography of Dr W G Atherstone 1814 - 1898. Dr William Guybon Atherstone was a remarkable man: medical pioneer, scientist, naturalist, parliamentarian, explorer, family man, keen observer of plants, animals, minerals, the heavens, and of course people. His interests included photography, religion, ostrich farming, railways, harbours and bridges, carpentry, building and electricity among others. His copious notes cover topics as diverse as veterinary research, hunting hints, preserving fruit, explosives, measuring instruments, soil analysis, and the utilisation of crayfish refuse! A lifetime's notes have been linked into an 'autobiography' of incredible detail.

Expect to pay GBP £30 per volume Abebooks.com November 2015
