Time Traveling Marie Curie?

Browsing Amazon for children’s books on the history of science, I came across this book on Marie Curie.

An early 17th-century book on Marie Curie. Who knew?

So many questions: Who in 1600 had developed color printing and why was that technology then lost for 300 years? When did Marie Curie develop a time machine (and did it require a DeLorean traveling at 88 mph)? Or, alternatively, what divinatory techniques did the author use to discern the future? And how accurate were the author’s predictions?

Sadly, I’ll never learn the answers to my various questions since the book is out of stock.
