JF Ptak Science Books Quick Post
I would love to write a book like this. The full title of the work by J. Birchall, The Admonitory Task Book;: Consisting of Prose and Poetry, Original and Selected: Interspersed With Striking Aphorisms, Useful Maxims, and Moral Precepts. Designed for the Use of Schools (1819). I want very badly to open this book. Unfortunately, it isn't anywhere to open--it seems not to be located in WorldCat/OCLC.
The source for this lovely title is Holletts Rare Books from the U.K. --its beautiful.
