Soap Bubbles and the Forces which Mould Them by C V Boys, 1890

'Soap Bubbles and the Forces which Mould Them' by C V Boys was published by The Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge in London and by E and J B Young and Co in New York in 1890. Information from Tung Ken Lam.

A full copy of the work can be found online here.



Cat-boxes - The Waterbomb


The Frog - The Blow-up Frog

There is also reference to a frog made of folded paper which, from the fact it is inflated is clearly the Blow-up Frog.

The 'boxes made by cutting slits in paper' is probably a reference to the Catherine of Cleves Box.
