KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the life story of Louis Agassiz and of more general interest than its publication as a book for older boys and girls would indicate. Agassiz, whose contribution to the world was greater than his books on science and the fame they brought him, for he revolutionized the methods of teaching, and brought science to life, within the bounds of everyone's interest and enthusiasm. His boyhood in Switzerland, his struggles for adequate schooling in his chosen field, his years of research and writing and teaching, culminating in his coming to Harvard where the name still stands for science alive. (J.L.G. for July). Decorative drawings by Lynd Ward. Eight plates in full color from Agassiz' own work. Plus sale for adults.
