Intriguing scientific images that would require great ingenuity and patience to reproduce, even today. Berenice, shooting on large format film, with unbelievably slow lenses, and strobes that were equally slow and temperamental, was a genius.

This is a superb collection of photographs illustrating phenomena in motion under gravity, magnetic fields and of light waves Originally done for an innovative high school physics textbook done in the late 1950's, the photographs are technically excellent and remain as interesting today. Here, however, the explanations of what you are seeing are very brief. They require exposition by a physicist. As much as I enjoyed my copy, I shall donate it to a high school or college physics department where I hope it will have long service as excellent outside source material.
