Marvels of Modern Science is a classic science history study by Paul Severing. The purpose of this little science book is to give a general idea of a few of the great achievements of of the past. Within such a limited space it was impossible to even mention thousands more of the great inventions and triumphs which mark the rushing progress of the world in the present century; therefore, only those subjects have been treated which appeal with more than passing interest to all. For instance, the flying machine is engaging the attention of the old, the young and the middle-aged, and soon the whole world will be on the wing. Contents: Flying machines -- Wireless telegraphy -- Radium -- Moving pictures -- Sky-scrapers and how they are built -- Ocean palaces -- Wonderful creations in plant life -- Latest discoveries in archaeology -- Great tunnels of the world -- Electricity in the household -- Harnessing the water-fall -- Wonderful war ships -- A talk on big guns -- Mystery of the stars -- Can we communicate with other worlds?
