The dating game : one man's search for the age of the Earth by Cherry Lewis( Book )

How old is the Earth? At the end of the 19th century, geologists, biologists, physicists and astronomers were all looking for a clock that would provide an answer to this greatest Time question of all.

The enlightened Mr. Parkinson : the pioneering life of a forgotten surgeon and the mysterious disease that bears his name by Cherry Lewis( Book )

15 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A colorful and absorbing portrait of James Parkinson -- after whom Parkinson's disease is named -- and the turbulent, intellectually vibrant world of Georgian London. Author Cherry Lewis examines Parkinson's three seemingly disparate passions: medicine, politics, and fossils. As a political radical, Parkinson was interrogated over a plot to kill King George III, putting himself in danger of being exiled. He helped Edward Jenner set up smallpox vaccination stations across London, saving countless lives. He also wrote the first scientific study of fossils in English, jump-starting a craze for fossil hunting in Britain. Parkinson was truly one of the intellectual pioneers of 'the age of wonder, ' forgotten to history -- until now. -- Adapted from book jacket

Gertrude Jekyll, the making of a garden : an anthology by Gertrude Jekyll( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a selection from the writings of Gertrude Jekyll, known the world over for her garden designs. Art school trained, she became a craftswoman of great skill and imagination, till increasingly poor eyesight forced her to abandon close work. It was at this stage of her life that she turned her seemingly inexhaustible resources wholeheartedly to the creation of gardens and writing about her gardening experiences." "A well-known and much sought after garden designer during her lifetime, her strong views on garden plantings and colour schemes have helped generations of gardeners to develop their own gardens, and their own particular approach to gardening." "This new edition of the anthology, now with 151 colour illustrations, 162 duotones and 10 black and white illustrations, takes us through the making and management of gardens, the disasters and delights encountered along the way, the practicalities and pleasures involved. It is an attempt to encapsulate the quintessence of Gertrude Jekyll's writings and, in so doing, endeavours to reflect the all-embracing nature of a truly "renaissance" personality."--Jacket
