One of the most important science books ever published was Robert Hooke's 1665 Micrographia. It's next to impossible to page through the original edition, but the Internet offers you a number of ways to experience its glory. At Download the Universe, I consider the work that Samuel Pepys called "the most ingenious book I have ever read."

Thanks for putting in links to the various ways to read the book.
 
I love his drawings!  I also love the history of him and Isaac Newton, and scientific rivalry.
