This volume not only contains Mr. Tompkins in Wonderland and Mr. Tompkins Explores the Atom, but when those at Cambridge University Press decided such things, they contacted the writer and asked him to include some more stories and update some of the older ones to current scientific thought. New information was also added on fission and fusion, the steady state universe, and elementary particles. Scientific American reviewed the book, commenting " (It) will vastly fascinate the whimsical, and is also entirely scientific. Drawings and calculations included. Light rubbing on the cover. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
