Things of Science #265 — Taste

Things of Science unit from September, 1962 on taste. The booklet was in poor shape when I scanned it. It required a lot of post-work to fix it up. I think the gum or some other “thing” in the unit had soiled it. Oh well.

Here is the booklet:

Things of Science #264 — Silk

Silkworm 1Things of Science unit from October, 1962 on silk. I was surprised to see an actual silkworm cocoon in the unit. And this is an unusual booklet in that it has photographs (reproduced with half-toning of course).

Things of Science #256 — Seeds

Things of Science unit from February, 1962 on seeds. Interesting — the unit appears to be complete with original seeds.

Things of Science #255 — Sea Shell

ShellsThings of Science unit from January, 1962 on sea shells. With the illustration from the booklet to the one side here and the photo of the “things” below, it took me but a few seconds to identify each shell below. (I wish now I had placed them to match the illustration when I imaged them.)

Here is the booklet:

Things of Science #230 — Butterflies

Things of Science unit from December, 1959. This came in a collection off eBay with no description — I sort of bought them on faith. And here is one titled “Butterflies”. Please, don’t tell me there are butterflies in the unit.

Yep.

Here is the booklet:
