The Lovereading4Kids comment

A welcome return of a classic title which shows how the world was viewed by a different generation in the years following World War Two. Clarke Hutton’s lithographs take the reader on a journey of exploration through the new worlds as they were found from the time of the Phoenicians and Greeks though Sir Walter Raleigh’s discovery of the America, Captain Cook’s arrival in Australia and Captain Scott and Amundsen’s desperate race for the South Pole. The heroic stories will continue to delight a new generation and the old fashioned illustrations are full of period charm. From the same author who brought you A Picture History of Britain.

Synopsis

A Picture History Of Great Discoveries by Clarke Hutton

Following on from the success of A Picture History of Britain, Clarke Hutton's sumptuous illustrations now take us across the world, accompanying some of history's great explorers - from Christopher Columbus, Vasco de Gama and Sir Francis Drake to Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton.
