I have a feeling that this one needs no further introduction.

The history and development of internal-combustion engines.

http://library.sciencemadness.org/library/index.html — The Sciencemadness library.
As dry as the titles look, you can still find a kaboom or two in there, such as in “Ignition!”. “Excuse Me Sir, Would You Like to Buy a Kilo of Isopropyl Bromide?” is also an interesting read, as far as I am concerned.

https://archive.org/details/@mirtitles — Mir Publishers translated various books from Russian to English. And not just science books, at that, but also storybooks. I think you will find interesting reading matter in there.

This reminds me of a Kipling just-so story as written by Bertie Wooster.

There's another book, Through the Alimentary Canal with Gun and Camera by George S. Chappell. I've read excerpts and reviews, but it's not on Google Books, nor on the Gutenberg Project. The closest I could find was High Society from the same author. I'd recommend the illustrations in both books, as they are by wonderful cartoonists of the day - Otto Soglow (artist of "The Little King") and Anne Harriet Fish (who mined the same vein of society as Charles Dana Gibson).

There is a copy of "Alimentary Canal" on the Internet Archive, but it is badly done. Seems to be a hallmark of Public Library of India's e-books.

High Society is there, too.

Basically an expanded version of the Phillips press code. Phillips was used to compress news telegrams and cut down on transmission time.

This page offers two books by one Tom Weller: "Science Made Stupid" and "Cvltvre Made Stvpid". Both are nice bits of send-up.
