Product Description


"An excellent book. Fireworks benefits from the tremendous temporal, geographic, linguistic, and archival scope of Werrett's research. It will make a real contribution to the history of art, science, technology, and early modern Europe, not just separately but together." - Michael D. Gordin, Princeton University.

Fabulous "Fireworks" 14 Jun. 2010
By Douglas Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Simon Werrett has written a fascinating book on the history of pyrotechnics that is as learned as it is accessible. After reading this book, no one will ever look up at a night sky lit by fireworks with the same eyes.
